I had a stroke 2 month ago and recovered well as I was thrombolysed. My life insurance expires this month, and have been declined due to health. I am unsure if it’s due to investigations ongoing into stroke. Does everyone else have issues getting cover or can recommend a company that insure post stroke 😏
Life insurance : I had a stroke 2 month... - Different Strokes
I see in your bio that you live in the United Kingdom, I don’t know about there but I do know in the US you cannot get it if you have had a stroke due to APS/Hughes Syndrome. I am now 56 had stroke at 53. Fortunately I had it prior, privately. Best of luck.
Are you still working? Maybe you can get it as a benefit through your employer..would be interested to know. I am no longer working as I have been classified “disabled” because my “executive functioning” has been effected. Let us know...
Hi thanks for the reply. I have my enquired any further, as I am still waiting on test results to discover why I had a stroke. Have no risk factors other than AS which Rheumy doesn’t feel would cause it as inflammation is fairly well controlled.
I am currently going through the process of ill health retirement, so employer is a no go. Hoping to travel once pension is sorted, just hoping travel insurance isn’t as problematic
I have a friend who has AS I just didn’t know it was abbrev as such. She found out she had it of her back suddenly, had to have emergency surgery and is working very hard to get back to her “normal” as she can. She lost her ability to walk, etc. This can be very disabilatating. I hope the best for you
I also had no risk factors before my strokes My Gp described me as the person he least expected to have a stroke as I was so fit. It took a year after my second stroke to be diagnosed with Aps because they kept insisting I didn't have an auto - immune issue, well funnily enough I did so they looked a bit stupid and never mentioned it again.
