23% of HIV Positive People Now Have Life Assurance …

Our Sponsors Compass are experts at finding Life Assurance and Life Insurance for both HIV Negative and HIV Positive Gay Men and Women.

Here’s some news from their friends at Unusual Risks.

Unusual Risks, the medical financial advisers are today announcing the results of their latest HIV Life Assurance research. After conducting the most extensive survey ever into the financial needs of the HIV community, they can now confirm that 23% of HIV Positive people now have some form of Life Assurance policy.

This figure compares favourably with research that was conducted during 2011 showing that 82% of HIV People had no Life Assurance whatsoever. Also within this more detailed survey Unusual Risks has established that 42% of those insured had taken their policy before the introduction of HIV life Assurance in 2009 and 58% had taken their policy after this date.

In their latest survey Unusual Risks have looked into the financial needs of the HIV community in greater detail, with a focus not only on the headline figure of people holding insurance, but also looking at when they took out their insurance policy. This was to highlight to people that are newly diagnosed they should always check if they are still covered on their existing policies before cancelling any taken before May 2009.

Chris Morgan, Compass and Unusual Risks have been helping people living with HIV to find the best Mortgage and Life Assurance for their needs for the last fifteen years. In the next few months they will be releasing further detailed research into the reasons that HIV+ people take insurance and the other types of insurance HIV+ people are likely to be interested in if they were to become available in the market place.
