When shopping for term life insurance for people with Multiple Sclerosis, there are some important things to keep in mind.
Securing Term Life Insurance With Multiple Sclerosis
First thing is life insurance companies typically offer more favorable results for individuals who have had the disease longer.
Since the disease affects everyone differently and is so unpredictable in nature, the longer an individual has the disease, the more history and insight the insurance company has on the condition.
For example, an individual applying for life insurance who has been diagnosed over five years ago could potentially receive better life insurance rates than an individual who was diagnosed 12 months ago.
The most favorable rates for term life insurance with multiple sclerosis will be generally offered to individuals in the following instances: the first attack occurred younger than 35 years old; only experienced one symptom during the first year; there have been no signs or symptoms in the past five years; and the disease is not progressive or disabling.
The points above are a general rule and shouldn’t deter you from applying for life insurance if you don’t fall into these specific categories. Because the disease affects everyone differently, it is important to communicate the details of your MS to an agent. The following is a list of imporant information which will help us determine which insurance carrier will treat your MS most favorably:
Age at diagnosis
Number of attacks and date(s) of last attack(s)
Any medications currently taking
The diagnosis of MS (see below for descriptions)*
Mild– Infrequent attacks, long periods of remission, no disability.
Moderate– Attacks with increasing frequency/duration with some residual neurological impairment but you are fully functional.
Severe– Wheel chair bound or bed ridden and need assistance with daily activities.
Facts about applying for life insurance with multiple sclerosis:
1) It IS possible to obtain standard rates (term or whole life insurance).
2) No two insurance companies will view your case the same. They'll all view your MS differently. It's up to your agent to find the company that will look most favorably at YOUR unique MS.
