In this episode of CuraVision I explain how we helped Philip secure cover after his diagnosis of prostate cancer and surgery, 5 years prior to speaking to us. When that diagnosis happened he'd had his full prostate removed and in terms of prostate cancers he had what was known a Gleason score of seven, the cancer was a Stage T2B and his original PSA readings were 23. Five years since the initial diagnosis and surgery, his last two years worth of PSA results were 0.2, which was really good, really favourable. Watch the video to see how after our recommendation we successfully arranged a life insurance policy that provided his wife with vital financial protection.
Hi. Today I want to talk to you about Philip. Philip came to us because he had recently changed jobs and his original employer offered what's known as Death In Service Benefit, which is a form of life insurance, and his new employer didn't and he really wanted to make sure that he had some life insurance in place so that if anything were to happen to him that his wife would be looked after.
Now, Philip was in his mid 50s, non-smoker, job was just a regular kind of administrative type job, so no risks there, and he was living his life to the full, he was skiing, he was wreck diving, but the main reason that he came to us was because five years prior to speaking to us he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
So when that diagnosis happened he'd had his full prostate removed. So in kind of the terms of prostate cancers he had what was known a Gleason score of seven. The cancer was a Stage T2B and his original PSA readings were 23. So we were now five years down the road, his last two years worth of PSA results were 0.2, which was really good, really favourable, and we looked at the different needs and everything that he wanted and, obviously, we gave our recommendation and Philip really wanted to just kind of mirror what he'd already had through his employment because he felt that that was enough. It was roughly two times his salary to provide to his wife should something happen to him up to his retirement age.
So what we did, we put in a level life insurance of £100,000 over 10 years to take him to his retirement age and that came to a monthly premium of £67 per month.
