When you are travelling abroad the first thing that generally pops to mind is travel insurance. This completely makes sense but it’s also worthwhile thinking about what your travel can mean for things like life insurance.
When you apply for life insurance and are travelling to the Democratic Republic of Congo the insurer will probably want to know some specific details:
- How long are you travelling to the DRC for?
- Are you travelling to the Democratic Republic of Congo for holiday or work?
- When will your trip start?
It is possible that some life insurers might ask some more details from you such as the exact location that you will be travelling to.
If your journey is less than 30 days it could be that some insurers can offer you life insurance at standard terms.
If you are an offshore worker and will be visiting the DRC regularly, it will be important to pick a life insurer that supports your working pattern. This is where our advisers shine!
People that have spent a significant amount of time in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the past, may find that some insurers ask you to have a Hepatitis and HIV test before they assess your application.
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.
A holiday to the Democratic Republic of Congo will often have little to no affect on your critical illness application. A holiday is usually seen as a trip of 30 days or less.
Travel to the DRC for more than 30 days for a holiday, or more than a week for work, will be looked at more by insurers. They will want to assess if there is an increased risk of you developing a critical illness based upon the environment and other factors linked to your destination.
It could be that critical illness cover is available to you and most insurers that can offer this will increase the premiums based upon your travel.
Our advisers will search the insurance market for you to make sure that you get a high quality critical illness policy.
Income protection pays you a replacement of your monthly income, if you are unable to work due to ill health.
Income protection for those travelling to the Democratic Republic of Congo will need to be placed with an insurer that can consider the application.
Again, if the trip is for a short holiday you should have little trouble arranging income protection. If you are travelling to the DRC for work, the insurer will want to check some details with you.
If this is you, your application will be reviewed on a case by case basis. The insurer will want to check what your duties will be in the country and possibly details of your exact location and how you will travel whilst in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Our advisers will help find the right income protection policy for you.
