Life insurance is one of the most important purchases that you’ll ever make for your family. It’s the best safety net that you can buy for your loved ones. If something tragic were to happen to you, your life insurance would give them the resources that they needed to get through the difficult time without struggling financially.
Finding the perfect insurance policy can be a long and frustrating process. There are so many different kinds of policies to choose from and thousands of different companies that all claim to have the “best policy for you,” but how are you supposed to decide between all of these companies? Finding an affordable and quality life insurance plan can be hard, but it’s even more difficult if you have a preexisting condition.
Can you get life insurance with Multiple Sclerosis? Absolutely. Affordable life insurance with MS is all about using the right life insurance company.
If you're searching for life insurance with multiple sclerosis and have been recently denied life insurance or received a quote for higher than expected premiums, then you're in the right place.
We've been helping consumers find affordable life insurance with MS for years.
When shopping for term life insurance for people with Multiple Sclerosis, there are some important things to keep in mind. If you're in search of high risk life insurance, we have options for you.
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.

Have You Been Declined For Life Insurance With Multiple Sclerosis?
Don't let a previous life insurance deter your quest for coverage. If you think your MS is under control, your agent probably used the wrong life insurance company. We see it happen all the time.
If your MS is more severe and you truly can't qualify for traditional life insurance, there are alternative policies available. A popular choice for people who can't qualify for term life insurance with Multiple Sclerosis is a graded death benefit life insurance policy. (read more about these policies via the link provided)

Not having life insurance is one of the worst mistakes that you can make for your family members. If you were to pass away, your loved ones would be responsible for all of your unpaid expenses and debts, which can put them under a massive amount of bills.
Aside from picking the perfect kind of policy, it’s vital that you purchase enough life insurance to give your family the money that they need if anything tragic happens to you. There are several things that you should consider when calculating your life insurance needs, but the two main things are your debts and your income. Your loved ones will be able to use the money to pay off mortgages, student loans, car payments and much more.
