Life Insurance Post Transplant

Post by DeanH »

Does anyone have any experience with successfully getting life insurance after having had a kidney transplant? I have a kidney and pancreas and not having much luck so far...

Many thanks

Try an Insurance Broker, it will have to be an individual policy.

Good Luck.

I’m lucky to have life insurance through the company I work for, covers existing medical issues. Looked into it for a private policy and it’s very expensive post TX, even 5 years out.
Now 35 with Alports and I had my first kidney-versary 18th feb 2013....I hope to have many more.

My living donor and his family are doing all well.

Hi all,

You may have got sorted by now, but The Insurance Surgery is a specialist broker for different medical conditions and they may be able to help.

(Mod Edit - Emily works for The Insurance Surgery.. obviously there are other insurance companies for you to also consider)

I've also relied on my company death-in-service policy since my tx. I wonder what it'd be like to try now at 13 years out...
