Can I get life insurance if I have Huntington's disease in my family?

How might a family history of Huntington's affect my life insurance premiums?

This will depend on several points including whether you have any symptoms, the extent of Huntington's in your family and also on the results of a genetic test if you have had one done. Testing is a very personal choice and insurers cannot insist on it being carried out. If you have been tested, a negative test is likely to mean that you can take out standard life insurance.

As with any medical condition there are a number of factors which can affect your premiums which may include:

  • Your smoking status
  • Your general health
  • Your age
  • Your occupation

Comparing life insurance policies which cover hereditary conditions such as Huntington's is crucial - your circumstances could mean you face a higher premium and you need to make sure you are getting the value from your policy that you need. By speaking to our insurance expert partner, they can explain which policies are available to you and help you to make the best decision for you in terms of cover and price.

Honesty is extremely important. You should always declare any medical condition if asked on a life insurance search and fill out documents accurately and to the best of your knowledge. If you don't you may find your policy is void and therefore you are not covered.

What questions might a life insurance company ask about our family history of Huntington's?

With genetic diseases such as Huntington's, a family medical history can vary enormously. Being able to provide the information to an insurer can help them get you the most suitable cover Alongside the standard questions that every applicant will need to answer, you may be asked for the following answers:

  • Have you been diagnosed with Huntington's?
  • When were you diagnosed?
  • Is it in the family? And, if so, how many family members are affected?
  • What are your symptoms?
  • Are you able to work
  • Do you need mobility aids?
  • What medications are you taking?
