Gay Insurance Survey 2013 – Gay Critical Illness Cover

News From Our Friends … Compass, the gay insurance advisers have today published their latest research into the insurance needs of gay men and women and the amounts that they insure themselves for. For the first time ever the survey has solely focused on Critical Illness Cover, instead of the amounts of Life Assurance being taken by the gay community.

The research, which was conducted earlier this year, shows that the average Critical Illness Policy being taken out by the Gay & Lesbian community is £182,477. This is surprising when considering that the average Life Assurance policy taken by the gay community had risen to £242,578 in the Gay Life Assurance Survey 2012.

The survey also established that only 19% of Gay & Lesbian insurance applicants are taking out Critical Illness Cover, which is lower than a previous reading of 22% which was taken back in 2011. The survey was conducted to help raise awareness of Critical Illness Cover within a community that has previously valued its financial independence.
