Covid-19 & Your Protection Policies

We hope everyone is keeping well in these unprecedented times, we have had a few queries regarding life cover, illness cover and income protection – this is not anything that any of us would like to think about but I would like to give you and your families the following reassurance:

– Do Life policies pay out for Covid-19? 

Yes, on receipt of a valid death claim

– Do Income Protection policies pay out for Covid-19

If you are diagnosed with Covid 19 and meet the definition of disability after the normal deferred period, Yes you will be able to submit a claim

– Do specified illness policies pay out for Covid-19? 

No Covid 19 is not a defined illness. However, a client may be eligible to claim for conditions arising from Covid 19 if the serious illness definition is met

– For new policies, if a client discloses that they have tested positive for Covid-19 will they be accepted for cover?

Cover may be possible but would be postponed until a full recover has been made.

We hope everyone stays safe and stays at home until we can stop this virus.
