Hi nelson,

...

How can I help?

Financial Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 1 year ago

I hold a law degree, (concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law), an MBA, (specialization in finance & tax), as well as CFP and CRPS designations. - I’ve been providing financial, Social Security/Medicare, estate, corporate, both for-profit and non-profit, and tax advice, since 1986.

...

While I'm waiting, some general information.

...

The underwriting standards from company to company very greatly. But there's one general, call it commonsensical, rule of thumb as staring place.

...

Life insurance underwriters will many times take what won't kill ya, where medical insurance (although much of this has now changed with ACA) will exclude what makes you sick.

...

As an example disability insurance carriers really don't like back issues, life insurance underwriters could care less.

...

And back to the original point, life insurance companies with higher claims contestability ratios (see AM Best) have lower standards for who they'll underwrite, generally (but getting them to pay out, rather than say that you didn't disclose well, and pay the claim, may be the issue)

But again, let me know your specific question, and we can go from there.

I have a form of leukemia with no treatment yet as watch and wait is applied. It was diagnosed in mid 2014. I also feel well and am asymptomatic except for blood counts. There are I have some life insurance prior to this diagnosos. I want to get additional life insurance at relatively reasonable rates, how can I do this, what companies can I contact and if we correspond futher I can give you an idea of my diagnosis to see if I can get an approximation to a quote. Thanks

Financial Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 1 year ago

As I'm sure you already know ... but to lay a foundation;

...

As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) explain, leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells.

It starts in the bone marrow, spreading into the blood and striking other organs. The many types of leukemia depend on how aggressive (acute vs. chronic leukemia) the disease is.

...

Acute cases involve immature bone marrow cells, which cannot properly operate. The number of these abnormal cells increases quickly.

...

In contrast, chronic leukemia involves more mature cells, which can still perform some of their normal functions.

The most common types of leukemia are acute myeloid leukemia, chronic myeloid leukemia, acute lymphocytic leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

...

Underwriting for life insurance after you have had leukemia depends on the stage and age that the client was first diagnosed.

...

If you were stage 0, under the age of 50, you will most likely see a decline in coverage. If you were stage 0, and over the age of 50, you may be able to qualify for coverage, but will see a table rating on top of the standard rates.

...

Getting life insurance after a stage 1 diagnosis will make it difficult to qualify for coverage and each application will be evaluated on a case by case basis. If you do not qualify for a fully underwritten life insurance policy your only option will be a graded benefit plan.

...

I would prefer going forward to do this confidentially (this forum is public i.e, the non-allowance of publicly identifiable information.

...

I can, however, make what's called an additional services offer here (I'll do so for the smallest amount JustAnswer will allow -$5)

...

If you accept, we will then get a private link for sharing email and phone contact confidentially ... and we can go from there

...

I am on a premium plan so accepting outside or addtional services option could imply significant expenditure for me(I just pay a flat monthly fee) , can you go into more detail how this would work? Thx

Financial Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 1 year ago

I thought I had made an offer (for only $5) but the system would let me make it - guessing that might have something to do with your subscription?
