Breast Cancer Life Insurance

Anyone who has had Breast Cancer looking for life insurance will generally be able to get cover and it can be available at anything from standard terms up to postpone or decline. Terms for Breast Cancer life insurance will depend on a number of factors which will be assessed by underwriters, such as:

  • What date were you diagnosed with Breast Cancer and what age were you
  • How aggressive was your Cancer (e.g. Grade and Stage)
  • What treatment did you receive (e.g. Mastectomy, Lumpectomy, Chemotherapy etc.)
  • How long since treatment ended (Min. 2 years usually)

Breast Cancer life insurance rates can vary dramatically from one insurance provider to another and will generally depend on when you received treatment and the period of time in remission. Most applications that we see for Breast Cancer life insurance are accepted with either a loading to the premiums for a period of time following end of treatment or are accepted at standard rates for clients with several years since treatment and no further issues.

If you have applied for Breast Cancer life insurance in the past and have had cover accepted on special terms or been declined / postponed cover then it is advisable to review cover to see if the situation has changed. Life insurance underwriting terms are constantly changing, especially for conditions such as Breast Cancer so it is well worth reviewing your policy to see if you can save money.

 

Breast Cancer Critical Illness Cover

If you have had Breast Cancer and you need critical illness cover then it can be available in certain circumstances, generally will be offered with a Cancer exclusion. As with other types of Cancer and critical illness cover, Breast Cancer critical illness cover terms will depend on the amount of time that has passed since you received treatment and the Grade / Stage of the Cancer you had. Life insurance underwriters will almost always want to see a copy of your GP report of a report from your specialist to help them to assess your application for Breast Cancer critical illness cover.

If you have received treatment fairly recently for Breast Cancer or if you have had a high Grade / Stage Cancer then you will generally find that critical illness cover will be declined unfortunately. There are some specialist products that may be available for you via The Insurance Surgery which exclude pre-existing medical conditions such as Cancer and will cover you for other conditions.

If you have applied for Breast Cancer critical illness cover in the past and had cover accepted on special terms or been declined cover then it may be worth reviewing based on your current circumstances. Underwriting for Breast Cancer critical illness cover is improving and as time passes you are more likely to be able to get cover to protect your family.

 

Breast Cancer Income Protection

Similarly to critical illness cover, Breast Cancer income protection can be accepted and from standard terms or standard terms with a Cancer exclusion depending on the amount of time since you ended primary treatment. Generally underwriting for income protection is slightly more strict than for critical illness cover so it can be more difficult to get cover in more recent Cancers and especially for more aggressive Cancers (e.g. higher Grade and Stage).

If you have applied for Breast Cancer income protection in the past and you have had cover accepted on special terms or been declined cover then it could be worth reviewing based on your existing circumstances. Terms and underwriting criteria for Breast Cancer income protection are constantly changing so things may have improved since you last tried to get cover.

Other types of Cancer Life Insurance:

  • Cancer Life Insurance (general)
  • Prostate Cancer Life Insurance
  • Thyroid Cancer Life Insurance
  • Skin Cancer Life Insurance

'The best broker you can get' Sarah Angel. An angel in name and in facts. She's the customer representative that has spent months in the months in helping me getting the deal I got. Always patient, never given up looking for the right policy and me. Frankly, I never thought a lot about brokers but this company is a blessing to people that cannot get insurances by themselves for health reasons. Thank you. 4.8
