Hi there everyone
Could anyone please recommend an insurance company that would insure me (or at least take a view) for critical illness cover to protect my wages / mortgage if I’m unable to work for an extended period of time?
I have mild RRMS (diagnosed around 3 years ago but most likely had it for at least double that length of time). I’ve not had a major relapse for 3 years and am currenly taking weekly Avonex. I work full time in an office job.
I tried Fish Insurance (who work with Vitality Insurance) but they no longer offer critical illness cover for ANY illness. Allegedly this was something that came as a shock to the Fish Insurance staff one morning when they went into work. As I had already applied prior to the change my application is “in the pipeline” - but it’s been in the pipeline for 3 months now, so I don’t hold out much hope.
I don’t require life insurance cover as my employer covers me for a death-in-service benefit.
