Like travel insurance, life insurance becomes more expensive and harder to find once you’ve been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer.
If you try to buy life insurance cover following a cancer diagnosis, you will usually have to pay an above-average premium. Some insurers may refuse to insure you altogether. To get the clearest picture of your situation, it may be worth seeking independent financial advice before speaking to insurance companies.
Whether or not you are able to get cover usually depends on the type of cancer you have and what stage it is at, so when you apply for policies make sure you speak to insurance consultants over the phone (rather than applying online) and have all of the details of your condition handy – staging, grading, function, etc. Your insurer will want to see a medical report and may ask you to have a medical assessment.
Some insurance companies and brokers specialise in cover for people with cancer and/or incurable illnesses, so again it’s worth asking for recommendations at our Facebook page. Remember, though, that an insurer will always make a decision based on your individual situation.
