Leukaemia life insurance

Life insurance can financially protect your home and your loved ones, which is especially important if you have been diagnosed with a form of cancer such as leukaemia. Are you looking for leukaemia life insurance with affordable premiums? iLL's simple comparison service and network of approved impaired insurance specialists can help you quickly and easily locate the best insurance policy at the right price, so that you can protect yourself and the ones you love into the future.

Leukaemia is a type of cancer that affects white blood cells. It is an aggressive form of cancer that requires timely treatment. White blood cells fight viral infection and bacteria in the body. Those with leukaemia have a compromised immune system because their cancer causes their body to over-produce abnormal white blood cells. Symptoms of leukaemia include looking pale, weakness, feeling short of breath, frequent infections, nosebleeds, bruising and weight loss.

Causes of leukaemia include exposure to radiation, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, smoking, exposure to benzene (a chemical present in cigarette smoke), genetic conditions such as Down's syndrome and blood disorders. Once diagnosed, it is important to treat leukaemia quickly. Chemotherapy is a common effective treatment for leukaemia. In some cases, a bone marrow or stem cell transplant will be required.

Whether you have recently recovered from or been diagnosed with leukaemia, we understand that the last thing on your mind is whether you will be able to obtain life insurance cover. iLL helps you to find the right insurer for your needs when you need to compare the market and find cover.

As leukaemia is a cancerous condition, some insurers will be cautious about accepting applications. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for leukaemia life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. Whether or not you are accepted for leukaemia life insurance will depend on when you were diagnosed, the type of leukaemia you have been diagnosed with, and the severity of your condition. Using iLL's simple comparison tool, you can find the right insurer for your personal circumstances.

If you have been diagnosed with leukaemia, you should expect to pay higher premiums, as you have a cancerous condition with a high level of risk. How high your premiums are will depend on the severity of your cancer and whether it is or has been successfully treatable. If you have previously had leukaemia but have been successfully treated for the condition, you may even be accepted for cover on standard terms. Your premiums will always be based on the level of risk you pose to an insurer.

Prices from insurers will vary depending on who you speak to, which is why iLL is the perfect place to find the best impaired leukaemia life insurance specialist.

You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if you have had to undertake a bone marrow transplant because of severe leukaemia and there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.

At iLL, our specialist impaired life insurance partners and comparison service can help you find the right FCA-regulated life insurer that suits your needs, helping you to compare prices and locate the right policy that works for you.

Further cover for leukaemia life insurance

If you have been diagnosed with leukaemia and are seeking cover for critical illness, you may be eligible for cover with a specialist insurer if you have not required treatment for several years. If some time has passed since you were treated for leukaemia and you have no further complications and are fully recovered, you may be eligible for standard cover or cover with small premium loadings. Your premium costs will depend on when you were first diagnosed with leukaemia, and the amount of time that has passed since you had and were treated for the condition. In more severe cases, you may require cover from a specialist insurer.
