Underwriting Case Studies

Our expert underwriters will assess every case and will very often offer valuable cover for people who are considered ‘uninsurable’ by other standard providers. In addition, our extensive experience in the specialist field of medical underwriting allows us to quickly assess any initial pre-sales enquiry about the potential cost and provide an indication of this within a few days.

We understand that there will be times when your client may have a strict budget. On these occasions we can offer an Illustration based upon affordability matching their budget to a lower sum and term.

Finding the right product to suit your client's circumstances is essential to treating them fairly. As a provider, for protection products, we generally don’t look to offer terms to healthy clients or those with mild health conditions.

Detailed below are examples of a mild to moderate, moderate and severe case.

On the very severe cases, we may have to reduce the policy term. However, it does at least mean that your client will have the assurance of some cover when they need it most.
