Hi shirley53

Probably the best people to help you are the advisors on the Macmillan helpline.  Don't think they work weekends but there would be someone there tomorrow.  I've rung them a few times myself with financial queries and they have always been very helpful.

There are a few adverts in my newspapers today from companies who say they do not check your medical history so hopefully you will be able to find a suitable policy somewhere.

Best wishes x

Hi Shirley , good advice from Margaret, before I had cancer I had life insurance but to keep costs down it was not for critical or terminal illness , big mistake as I could not claim , they would not offer me cover for critical or terminal so I just let the policy run out a year later and since then I have had no life insurance ,my choice though . The premiums will be quite high Shirley unless Macmillan can recommend one . Good luck and please let us know the outcome if you like .Best wishes .

Hi, did you manage to sort out Life insurance. I’m having trouble trying to find a company that’s not too expensive?

Hi Donna sorry but no joy the only ones I could get was the sun life no questions asked but you get almost nothing back, so I decided to put money away into an account each month instead,but good luck with your search and hopefully you might find something.
