DH has been diagnosed with Sarcoidosis will this affect his life insurance? Many thanks

My understanding is that as long as you told the truth when you took out the insurance - i.e. you declared all the health issues you knew about at the time - then you're fine. But I'm no expert - you should probably ring the insurance company and ask. Sorry about the diagnosis.

Thanks, am hoping it's the acute type so occasional flare ups if it's a chronic pathway so a slow decline in health he will struggle to cope. There was nothing when we took out the policy about 15 years ago.
We were wondering if it would pay out?

I asked the question a while ago. As long as you told the truth at the time of taking out the insurance and continue to pay the premiums you are covered.

But I take it we'll need to declare it

Only if you are making a claim.

You don't need to update them, the premium is set for the duration.

I don't think it's a condition we can claim for. But wonder if it will cause more problems if we ring and check, but I we must be honest.

Don't want to alarm you OP but life insurance only pays out when someone dies!

There is critical illness cover as part of the policy too.

Ah, ok Meg. I guess all you can do is phone and find out.
