Life Insurance

Life Insurance for people with sickle cell anaemia trait should be available at standard terms with most insurers. It is unlikely that the insurer you approach for Life Insurance will ask about whether you have sickle cell anaemia trait or if any of your family members have the condition. If you take any medication and/or have seen your GP in regards to your health you must detail this in your Life Insurance application. If you are unsure as to what you should detail in your application please discuss this with your financial adviser.

Summary definition

Sickle cell anaemia trait is diagnosed when you are a carrier of sickle cell disease gene. This means that whilst you do not have sickle cell anaemia there is the potential for the condition to be passed on to any biological children that you have. Sickle cell anaemia causes severe pain due to the abnormal shape of the red blood cells that will also cause damage to body tissues and organs as they circulate.
