While it may be true that one finds it a bit difficult to obtain insurance coverage for people with disabilities, there are still companies who admit to cover them.

There are different reasons why a person has disabilities including illness, serious accident, and birth defects, to name some. These reasons will tell the overall health of an individual. Insurance coverage greatly depends on the risk they undertake according to life expectancy of one person. Thus the severity of the disability will be a large factor in determining the availability and cost of the life insurance.

  • If the reason for disability increases the risk of complications in later life, say the dysfunction of some internal organs, it is very likely to have an impact on the availability of the cover that would be most applicable, as well as the cost of it.
  • If the person disabled reasonable lives a normal and self sufficient life, he may be able to enjoy insurance coverage at standard prices.

But above mentioned does not point to the hard and fast rules when it comes to obtaining an insurance coverage for people with disabilities. Insurance companies still follow the general process of assessing the applicant on individual merit and to thoroughly examine all relevant medical information in which a need for the expertise of an underwriter is sought. The underwriter is tasked to review the application. After taking all things into consideration, he will give the determination on whether it is still applicable to cover your life with insurance.

How to get a lower premium for people with disabilities?

It may be noted that insurance for disabled people tend to have higher premium than standard policies because of the risk factor. Nonetheless one can still have a policy with an affordable premium. Speak directly to advisers whose expertise deals primarily on protection for people with disabilities. They will understand the type of disability one has, therefore finding the appropriate policy that covers everything you need and at the same time having them at reasonable prices.

There are also those policies with stated pre-existing conditions whereby the policy becomes void in the event the disability caused the death of the insured. These types are for those who want to get a life insurance at lower cost despite being diagnosed of disabilities. They are the ones who are insuring their life discounting the present health condition, therefore explicitly disclosing that should death be connected to the disability the insurance protection will not apply.

Having considered the foregoing, it is safe to conclude that insurance for the disabled is still possible. Go fill out that simple questionnaire and have yourself assessed by the expert! After all, it won’t hurt to check around.

    This is why you shouldn’t just assume things and give up without trying. My cousin has lost his job, his health, and of course his insurance after he had a car accident and lost full use of his left arm. He doesn’t believe he can live a quality life from here on because he says he could never afford the necessary health care costs. Based on this article I think he might have given up a little too quickly. Our government should really do a better job of making these facts be known better.

    Having a life insurance for me means a whole lot because I know I won’t be leaving my family with nothing in the event of an accident. I work a high risk, high reward job and I lost my life insurance when I was deemed a disabled person a few years back. I first need to check if the premium makes sense for my needs, but this is definitely worth checking out.

    I wish information like this was more readily available for people. Adjusting to life after developing a disability is hard enough, but trying to get accustomed to new laws and regulation make things so much more difficult and depressing. Regardless this is good news and it’ll be worth digging deeper for additional information.
