Life insurance

Hi all,

This is my first time asking a question in this forum, I have been looking for the last year or so. I got diagnosed with Bronchiectasis last summer and have a young family, with two girls aged 5 and 2. I have had a difficult start to the year with over 12 infections since Christmas. I have just changed consultant and meds and am hoping I will start feeling better soon, especially now the sun has put in an appearance!

I have a practical question. I need to sort out life insurance and wanted to know what the best deals were and if anyone else got insurance after being diagnosed with a lung condition?

Hope you can help,

Vikki

  • Welcome Vikki,

    I don't have life insurance so can't really advise, but I am sure BLF can advise you further about this.

    I am so sorry you have had so many infections this year, hopefully now you will be stable for a very long time to come.

    Take good care

  • Thanks for all the help.

    I will take a look at the BLF travel pack and call the helpline.

  • Hi Vikki, This is a difficult one - my husband is now 65 (old git!!!!) and therefore he has more problems getting life insurance full stop. We have been discussing this with our insurance/pension man and he seems to think there will be a problem and at the very least he will need a full medical. My husband is terrified of such things - so wont be doing that! I would suggest that you try to find a specialist insurance agency, there must be a such a thing. It is such a tedious task but unfortunately one we all must face.

    Perhaps the companies that offer travel insurance maybe a good starting point.

    It is so tiring having all the infections I hope that you have seen the back of them and can enjoy a happy summer!

    with love and best wishes TAD xx

  • Life insurance can ensure financial security to those who mean the most to you, such as your spouse, children and dependent parents. A carefully executed life insurance policy can help prepare for life's uncertainties and give peace of mind knowing that the future of those who rely on you is secure.
