Rugby Players (Amateur)Life insurance for amateur rugby players should be available at normal terms. When you place your application for life insurance the insurer will want to know if you take part in rugby on a semi-professional basis at all.

If you play rugby on a professional or semi-professional basis then please see our dedicated page for you here.

Critical illness cover pays out a cash lump sum of money, if you are diagnosed with a medical condition that is listed in the insurer’s claims set e.g. cancer, heart attack, stroke.

Critical illness insurance for amateur rugby players will also likely be available at standard terms. The insurer will be interested in whether you have suffered any recent injuries from taking part in the sport. Due to the risk of severe injury you may find that total permanent disability will be excluded from the policy. This is just one claimable aspect of the policy and it should not deter you from the many conditions that you will still be able to claim for on the policy.

Income protection pays you a replacement of your monthly income, if you are unable to work due to ill health.

Income protection for amateur rugby players should be available at normal terms, but you will need to place your application with an insurer who looks upon the sport favourably. If your involvement in rugby is purely on an amateur basis then your application should be reviewed on your regular occupation only.

As a rugby player you are in a highly physical environment and are regularly active. You may find that the VitalityLife Life Insurance policy may suit your needs as it gives practical rewards for those who live a healthy lifestyle. Please see our healthy living page to find out further details of the benefits and rewards you can earn through VitalityLife here.
