About underactive thyroid

Also known as hypothyroidism, having an underactive thyroid is a condition in which your thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones to function correctly. If you have an underactive thyroid, you are more likely to gain weight, experience fatigue and have depression. Daily hormone tablets are one of the most common ways to ease symptoms. In some cases, underactive thyroid is caused by the immune system attacking the thyroid gland. If an underactive thyroid isn’t treated, various symptoms occur including loss of facial hair (eyebrows), a puffy face, slower heart rate and hearing loss.

As an underactive thyroid is a common condition that is controllable through medication, many insurers offer underactive thyroid life insurance on standard terms.

Finding the right insurer for underactive thyroid life insurance

It can be a confusing process if you are looking for life insurance, as you want to get the best deal for your circumstances. Although an underactive thyroid is a common medical condition, some insurers can be cautious about accepting applications, depending on the severity of your condition. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for underactive thyroid life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. If you have an underactive thyroid that is linked to another condition such as thyroid cancer, it can be more challenging to find an insurer that will accept your application. At iLi, we can help you find the right insurer and policy for your needs.

How much are underactive thyroid life insurance premiums?

An underactive thyroid is considered by many insurers to be a common medical condition. While you should expect to pay higher premiums than a person with no health conditions at all, cover is likely to be offered on either standard terms or terms with a minimal premium increase. This will however depend on the severity of your underactive thyroid, the medications you are currently prescribed, how long you have had the condition for, and the general level of risk you pose to an insurer.

Prices from insurers will vary depending on who you speak to, which is why iLi’s comparison service can help you find the best impaired underactive thyroid 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 your condition is severe, you are not taking prescribed medications to control your symptoms and there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future (for instance, if your thyroid condition is linked to another underlying condition), a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.
