It can be more difficult and more costly to get life insurance if you've had cancer, but there are still deals available. The majority of insurers will not provide life insurance until you have been clear of the illness for 2 or 3 years. The cover you get can also depend on:
- What type of cancer you had
- How developed the cancer became
- How long the cancer has been in remission
With your consent, the insurance company will contact your doctor to obtain details of your illness which could affect the policy they offer you.
