HIV & Hepatitis

“Things Have Changed – Part One” … Commentary by Chris Morgan

How many people living with HIV are being declined for Life Insurance currently?

Over the past 13 years I’ve met hundreds of people living with HIV who have been turned down for Life Insurance by the UK Financial Services Industry. The onset of the the Covid pandemic in 2020, meant that there was also a large increase in the number of people that have been turned down for Life Insurance.

We know that 56% of people living with HIV are currently being turned down for Life Insurance, the estimated figure is more likely to be nearer 70%. Many are deemed uninsurable when they apply with their banks or financial advisers – this is mostly without any reasonable explanation and is stressful for the applicants involved.

Unusual Risks have been working hard to reduce these numbers, via direct consultation with the Life Insurance companies that we deal with. We currently have a very high success rate of finding cover for people who have been declined for Life Insurance elsewhere.
