Stress related illnesses are included with most insurers

Income protection insurance can cover stress related illnesses and mental illnesses, in fact in 2011 31% of claims with the insurer LV were for Mental Disorders, e.g. stress.

Generally income protection policies do not have standard exclusions but please bear in mind that most insurers will not cover you for a pre existing condition. However the good news is that as the income protection policies are underwritten upfront it is clear from the outset what is covered and what is not.

I was having trouble finding a suitable income protection policy online and was unclear about what I should be looking for, so I contacted Drewberry. The process was very quick and straightforward. They called me and explained how this type of insurance works, and then went through series of questions about my circumstances to try and find the right cover for me. They came back to me the next day with several suitable options and emailed all the relevant information clearly laid out. Michael Barrow, the advisor I spoke to, was happy to explain things in detail and answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Drewberry as they took all the hassle out of a confusing search.
