Ebola

07/11/2014

 

Our underwriters are being very cautious on guidelines as the situation is ever changing and therefore, enquiries sent to them for Life Insurance are strictly being underwritten on a case by case basis.

Ebola is a very volatile situation at the moment, so the extent and price of cover is changing on a weekly, if not daily basis.  Each case will be treated individually and underwritten specifically at the time of enquiry.

At present, our Underwriters are using the following guidelines:

Term Restrictions:
Cover for Health Care Workers, Engineers and Security Consultants will be limited to 3 months at a time

Nursing Staff Travelling to regions to treat Ebola patients:
Cover is possible, but will be loaded heavily

Security Consultants:
Cover is possible and will be loaded Please note that underwriters guidelines above, applies throughout West Africa and is not limited solely to the 4 countries identified as being most affected by the outbreak.
