Confidential Life Insurance

A little birdie told me that you’re holding back on life insurance because you’re worried about discussing some health issues you have.

That’s awful, but I understand.

First, any insurance broker worth their salt shouldn’t make you feel uncomfortable about personal health issues, but I’m sure this won’t quell the fear.

So how about if I told you one of our rather clever insurers now offers an app that means your broker has ZERO access to your medical information.

That’s right.

With Appy, a new medical underwriting app, insurance advisors have less involvement in your medical history.

New Ireland Mortgage Protection Review

Next in the firing line is New Ireland’s mortgage protection insurance.

I do love a good review article and you are going to love this one.

OK, love is probably a bit of a strong word choice.

Nobody loves insurance but look if you're getting a mortgage, you need mortgage protection so let's suck it up and get through this.

Income Protection for Teachers

Aside from the odd ‘best teacher’ mug and ‘we'll miss you’ card you might get your hands on as the summer holidays creep in, teaching is a pretty thankless job.

But know this, I see you.

Not only do you educate my semi-feral children (more homework please, especially for the 11-year-old) but you also help them to navigate the difficulties of social interactions.

For those of you who work with our teens, well, good lord I don’t know how you do it.

The mood swings, and the Kevin and Perry style ‘why’s' have me pulling my hair out.

So, battling the constant nonsensical moaning from a class of 30+ Kevins must be soul-sucking at times.

And stressful.

But what if it becomes so stressful that you need an extended break on medical grounds?

Can I Get Life Insurance with Arthritis?

The most common forms of arthritis we advise on are Osteoarthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Reactive Arthritis. Ankylosing spondyloarthritis, Juvenile Arthritis, Palindromic rheumatism, Axial spondyloarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

When underwriting applications, the insurers are most concerned with symptoms, medication and planned surgeries.

Here's our guide to getting covert at the best price with the least amount of hassle.

How to Get Life Insurance or Mortgage Protection if you have Diabetes?

It is difficult to get life insurance with type 1 diabetes but it's not impossible.

We can get you covered at a much lower price than you'll through your bank.

What are the Mortgage Exemption Rules in Ireland in 2022

What is a Mortgage Exemption or Exception?

You know those sneaky little loopholes that make getting a mortgage that little bit easier.

Well, there are a couple of exemptions that may help you get your foot on the property ladder but what are they and how do you even convince a mortgage lender to give you one?

Income Protection for Nurses

Oh our brilliant nurses, without you wonderful bunch I don’t know where half of us would be.

Dead probably.

Since you are the backbone of the medical world it’s surprising how tight our government is when it comes to paying you what you’re worth - but we won’t delve into that too deeply right now because if I start I don’t reckon I’ll be able to stop myself.

I can’t pay you more or swindle you a rock-star salary deal but what I can do is make sure you get paid if you get sick.

Skin Disorders and Life Insurance

Generally, a skin disorder won't affect your mortgage protection or life insurance price.

However, if you are looking for income protection, the insurer may exclude your skin condition as a reason to claim.

That's why it is essential you choose the correct insurer for your skin complaint.

Addison’s Disease and Life Insurance

Getting life insurance or mortgage protection if you have Addison's Disease should be fairly straightforward.

The only time our clients have had an issue is when they have been recently diagnosed (less than six months ago).

In such a case, the insurer is likely to postpone offering cover until the six months are over.

Income Protection for Accountants

Ah, accountants, the sort you wouldn’t want to corner you at a party because, well, yawn.

All those debits and credit swimming around your brain have replaced the chit-chat leaving only tax rebates and allowable income small talk, right?

You know I’m only messin.

After all, I peddle life insurance for a living, so accountancy is a relative blast. I make you look like a veritable rock star at a party.

Accountants, I tip my hat to you, you wonderful bunch of money savers.

Without you, I’d be slogging away come tax season, holed up in my cave, throwing papers around like a loon.
