INSURANCE

Postby pumacat » Fri Jun 03, 2016 2:48 pm

:evil: Has anyone else realised that insurers are now taking Fibromyalgia very seriously when wanting insurance, I was turned down for cover due to having Fibromyalgia because my attacks to them seemed to be too regular, I explained it would not kill me but no joy anyone else had this problem

I wanted insurance cover just like PPI was, incase anything happened to me or my husband so outstanding car payments would be cleared, just a one off payment for the first one of us to pop off to clear anything outstanding etc. But they turned me down

If you already have an FM dx, it is a pre~existing condition where insurers are concerned which would mean they are unlikely to provide cover for any claims made involving FM.

I was diagnosed with Peripheral Vascular disease about 4/5 years ago. I applied for life insurance last year, and was refused due to it. I know have FM also, so I guess I'm goosed.
However, I'm 50 in a couple of weeks, so I'm going to try an over 50s insurance and see what happens.

Much Love

Guys i'll reproduce the contact detail for the broker that I used for my wife's life insurance (lifted from the post I've linked to above) ;

the broker's website :

www.curainsurance.co.uk

and the guy that's been a huge help to me is Alan Knowles.

I hope that is of some help guys, its definitely worth speaking to a specialist broker.
