    Life Insurance

    Hello,
    I’m wondering if anyone has any information about trying to get life insurance with a diagnosis of myotonic dystrophy. I was diagnosed back in March & have recently bought a house with my partner but am struggling to get life insurance which is frustrating, especially as I may die from something that is completely unrelated to myotonic dystrophy.
    It seems to be a blanket no from every company I have approached. And I have approached many…
    Any information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Genevieve

    Hi Genevieve

    I too was unable to get life insurance or employment insurance for my last mortgage. Have you tired the lender themselves? I recently got a mortgage quote for what they might lend and the adviser was confident they would also sell me insurance.

    Thanks Cat but unfortunately I tried that and was denied life insurance from the insurance linked to my mortgage too.
    Feels really frustrating but I will keep looking.
    Hopefully you have more luck.

    I’ve been denied life insurance every time I’ve tried. Before official diagnosis (this year) I was told I was an unknown risk, then when I had diagnosis confirmed I was still refused!!

    I wonder if a contact with one of the over arching bodies like the Association of British insurance, https://www.abi.org.uk/ or indeed the Financial Conduct Authority (Government) https://www.fca.org.uk/, asking how all of these refusals meet the criteria of disability equality. Surely this situation is not acceptable in any way at all.
