How can Long Covid affect your life insurance premiums?

Sadly when people are living with a chronic illness they have a greater chance of premature death and therefore premiums take into account the higher risk taken on by the insurance company.

Comparing the policies available to you is even more critical if you are facing a higher premium. It is so important that you find the best policy for your needs at the most reasonable price.

You should always declare any medical condition when asked and fill out documents accurately and honestly otherwise you may find your policy is void and you are not covered.

Everyone is at risk of unexpected illness or death and having life insurance in place can mean that, if the unfortunate should happen, you have put precautions in place to ensure that your loved ones are taken care of.

Long Covid is a chronic illness and like any other chronic illness it can affect which life insurance policies are available to you.
