Hi everyone, this week we are back to protection insurance underwriting and the focus is upon endometriosis. This is a condition that is far more common than you think and with half of an adviser’s clients being female, one that we feel is good to know about.
In most cases endometriosis will have little impact upon the options available for protection insurance, but there are key questions that you need to ask your clients, to make sure that your research covers everything. It’s also essential to make sure that you approach specific parts of your factfind in a sensitive manner, due to some of the long-term health implications that can be caused by this condition.
The key takeaways:
1 in 10 women in the UK have endometriosis.
Symptoms and potential treatments for endometriosis.
A case study of arranging life insurance to protect a mortgage, for someone living with endometriosis.
At the end of this episode I also give a few pointers on what to do if you are an employer, so that you can support colleagues that have endometriosis.
On the next podcast Roy McLoughlin is doing his first solo outing as host for the Practical Protection Podcast. Roy will be chatting with Lee Robertson, from Octo Members, about how protection insurance is an essential part of planning a client’s financial future.
