LGBT Insurance Survey 2015 …..

Happy Gay Pride Season Everyone !

Our friends at Compass, the Gay insurance advisers have today published their latest research into the insurance needs of the LGBT Community. For the first time ever the survey focuses on the Average amount of Life Assurance being taken out by Lesbians, Gay Men, Bisexuals and Transgender people, also including policies taken out by LGBT people living with HIV.

In a number of previous surveys Compass have published the average Gay Life Assurance figures, however, these surveys did not include insurance products that have been made available to HIV Positive people since 2009. The current average Life Assurance plan that is currently taken out by the LGBT community now has a sum assured of £185,015.

Chris Morgan the Lead Financial Adviser at Compass Mortgage and Insurance Services, Said …

‘For a number of years we have researched the Insurance needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bi Sexual and Transgender clients. The aim of our Insurance survey is to highlight the importance of protecting your mortgage, family, children with Life Insurance. This year we have taken the step of including Life Assurance for HIV Positive people in the Survey’.

Chris continued …

‘HIV Life Assurance has been available since 2009 and massive progress has been made in both the number of insurers offering products, premiums being charged and the number of people taking HIV Life Insurance. With five years of data now established it is the right time to include policies taken out by LGBT people who are living with HIV in the survey’.

In previous surveys, Compass established that 74% of LGBT people take out Life Assurance to protect their homes, with the remaining 26% taking out Life Insurance to protect their family, children or partner. They also established that 26% of LGBT people take an average amount of £182,577 of Critical Illness Cover with their Life Assurance.
