Our focus is on finding you the right anxiety life insurance cover

Forget what you may have been told about being denied life insurance because of anxiety. We want you to know that life insurance with anxiety is not just possible, it’s surprisingly easy to arrange.

Mental health is a big part of who we all are, and thankfully, insurers recognise this.

Whether you’ve been living with anxiety for 10 years or your feelings are new, we can absolutely find you the right cover.

How do we find the right cover?

Well, our anxiety life insurance experts have access to the whole market, including high street and independent insurers. This means that once we’ve had a chat with you about your life insurance cover needs, we’ll quickly come back to you with the best life insurance policy. One that makes sure you have the right cover should you or your family make a claim.

We’ll take the time to get to know you.

While we ask you a few questions about your mental health, much like we do for any life insurance quote, we’re very compassionate.

Some people love to tell us more about their life with anxiety, and others prefer to provide a brief answer to the qualifying life insurance questions all insurers ask.

Either way, we’re here to listen and provide you with the best life insurance policy for anxiety.

Taking away the complications of anxiety life insurance

If you’ve already searched for life insurance with anxiety, you may feel a little overwhelmed by the number and type of policies available. Life insurance policies can be tricky to understand at the best of times, let alone if you’re trying to work out if having anxiety excludes you from cover.

That’s where our experienced team of anxiety life insurance specialists can help.

We take the time to explain, in plain English, what your life insurance cover options are and walk you through your policy options. Taking a personal approach to anxiety life insurance, we sift out any policies that are not 100% right to arrive at the best life insurance anxiety cover for you and your family.

We talk you through the differences between a whole-life policy and a term policy, and help you decide how much cover you’ll need.

Crucially, we carefully consider any exclusions that may apply based on your medical history and anxiety diagnosis (if you have one).

Most importantly, we never forget that behind every life insurance claim, there’s a family who have lost a loved one and need the claims process to run smoothly. That’s why, when it comes to life insurance with anxiety cover, we take the time to understand how you wish your family to be protected.

What’s more, we promise to be there for your loved ones. We’ll help them check what your policy covers, fill out any forms, find the right paperwork, and more. It’s really quite simple – we care.

Getting life insurance with anxiety is easier than you think

Today, there’s far more awareness, and thankfully acceptance, of mental health. But if you’re living with anxiety, what does this mean for your life insurance?

Sadly, there’s still a misconception that you can’t get life insurance if you have anxiety, but this is simply not true. Every day, we arrange cover for people who live with:

  • Generalised anxiety
  • Panic disorder
  • Social anxiety
  • Specific phobias
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Depression
  • And a whole host of mental health conditions

Each year, 1 in 4 people in England experience a mental health problem. So, as life insurance experts, we find people with even the most complex anxiety diagnosis a policy that meets their needs.

We rarely come across someone looking for life insurance with anxiety who we cannot help.

Our network of income protection and life insurance providers includes all the big names you’d expect and niche insurers offering hyper-personalised cover. We match you with a life insurance or income protection policy that will kick in when you and your family need it.

Can you be denied life insurance due to anxiety?

All insurers will assess your application for life insurance based on the nature of your anxiety and your most recent medical history. Each insurer will have a different level of risk that they are willing and able to take.

Where one insurer may consider a heightening of your condition too much of a risk, another may be more than happy to provide you with cover.

By getting to know you, we’ll already have a good idea of the insurers that will offer you life insurance with anxiety.

We can also discuss your family’s medical history to see if you would benefit from a critical illness policy and help make sure that you’ve got the right income protection.

Whether you’re looking for individual policies or a full insurance plan that takes care of everything, we’ll help you find the best insurance policy.

We’ll find you the best anxiety life insurance quote

We get it. Going it alone to find life insurance with anxiety is not a walk in the park. Much like any life insurance policy, there’s a lot to consider. Then, once you’ve found some possible options, the premiums (the price you pay) can vary widely.

Choosing the best life insurance when living with anxiety is about so much more than just the premiums (although ours are confidently the lowest you’ll find). It’s about knowing that you’re paying for a policy that will absolutely pay out, if needed.

You need to know that your most important financial commitments and loved ones are taken care of, and that is priceless.

One of the many benefits of providing life insurance for more than 20 years is that we know exactly how to deliver on both – getting you the right insurance policy for the right price.

At The Insurance Surgery, we care about doing things properly. Not just because we’re highly regulated, but because we understand what living with anxiety is like.

We care for all the little, and not-so-little details.

We don’t like to see you paying for something you already have cover for. That’s why, we help you explore what your employer offers, your existing policies, and, if you’re self-employed, what cover you already have.

This personal service is why so many people living with anxiety choose us their income protection and life insurance needs.
