About deafness and hearing loss

Deafness and hearing loss is a common condition and can happen to anyone at any time. It typically happens as you get older, and can be temporary or permanent. It sometimes isn’t obvious when a person is slowly experiencing deafness. Common signs of deafness include difficulty hearing, confusion in noisy places, asking people to repeat themselves often, increasing the volume when watching the television or listening to music, and finding it difficult to focus on what other people are saying.

There are many different causes of hearing loss, including an ear infection, a burst ear drum, ear wax, or Ménière’s disease. Those who experience sudden deafness in both ears may have the condition because of a loud noise. If deafness occurs in one ear, possible causes include glue ear (a build-up of fluid in the ear), or the development of increased skin cells (cholesteatoma). Treatments for hearing loss include hearing aids and implants that are placed right inside the ear. Sign language is an effective way to communicate with another person who is experiencing deafness.

As deafness isn’t a life-threatening condition, many insurers offer cover, and many people are accepted for life insurance cover on either standard terms or with small premium increases.

Finding deafness life insurance with the best insurer

If you are wondering where to find the right deafness life insurance cover for your needs, iLi can help. Depending on the severity of your deafness and whether you have other underlying medical conditions, some insurers can be cautious about accepting applications. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for deafness life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. That said, deafness is not life threatening, therefore it is very unlikely that you will be declined for cover. iLi’s useful comparison tool can help you locate the right insurer for your circumstances. Many policies are available for those suffering with deafness, as there are many medical treatments that aid the condition (such as hearing aids), enabling sufferers to live normal lives.

Costs for deafness life insurance premiums

Unless your deafness has been caused by a secondary condition, life insurance cover should be available to you on standard terms. Your quote from an insurer for premiums will depend on the severity of your deafness, the medications and treatment you are undertaking, causes of deafness, how long you have been deaf for, and the level of risk you pose to an insurer.

Prices from insurers will vary depending on who you speak to. iLi can help you search the market to find the best impaired deafness life insurance specialist.

You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. If there is an increased chance of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.
At iLi, our specialist impaired life insurance partners and comparison service can help you find the right FCA-regulated life insurer that suits your needs, helping you to compare prices and find the right policy for your requirements as a deaf person. It’s quick and easy to get your quote.
