Can I Get Life Insurance With Asthma?

I’ve had asthma since childhood. Is it possible to get Life Insurance and will it cost me more due to my condition?

Question asked by Tom Baxter

Factors Insurers Will Look at on an Asthma Sufferer’s Application

You can get Life Insurance if you have asthma, but it will depend on the severity of the condition and several other factors to do with your health.

For example if you have severe asthma and also smoke or use an e-cigarette it is unlikely the insurer will offer standard terms and they will increase the premium to reflect the increased risk to your health.

With most medical conditions, the decision will be based on the details and severity of a condition and how it affects your day to day living and mortality rate. Always speak to and adviser who knows the market and can offer you some sound advice on which options will offer the lowest premium and best level of cover.

If you need our help with this, don’t hesitate to get in touch – we’re available on 02084327333.

Very good service from Rauri – he has been very helpful and thorough.
