I want to take out this cover but loads of places have declined to quote stating that I am over the maximum entry age, I’ve recently turned 60. Can I get cover from anywhere?

Cover over the age of 60

Yes, you are able to get cover so don’t worry. This is a common issue as there are a large number of people who have plans that end at age 60 only to find that their cover can’t be extended upon reaching age 60, even though they plan to continue working.

It is a shame that the vast majority of insurers have a maximum entry age of 59 years old (which is very frustrating) but luckily there are a couple of insurers with a maximum age to take out cover of 64 years old. With these insurers it is even possible for the plan to run up to the age of 70 years old.

Josh, Nick & Sam helped me set up PHI & Life insurance when I set up my own company. The application process wasn't straight forward due to my medical history, but the team made everything as simple as possible.
