What is stress?

When you feel stress, you feel that you are under great emotional and mental strain, giving you a sense that you cannot cope. Stress can have various triggers and people react in many different ways to it. One person’s stress is completely different to another’s. Stress is one of the most common types of mental health condition, and most people will unfortunately experience stress at some point in their lives. Stress can be caused by various factors including work stressors, money issues, debt and strained relationships.

Stress may be linked to mental health, but it has actual physical effects on the body – including weight loss, sleeping problems, lack of appetite and difficulty in focusing. People who suffer from stress often feel irritable, with a low mood and a tendency to behave out of character. Other symptoms include frequent headaches, tense muscles and feelings of disorientation. The body reacts to stress by switching on the ‘fight or flight’ response. This is an emergency state in which all senses are heightened, enabling a person to deal with threats. Those under great stress continue to remain in this ‘fight or flight’ mode.

A person under frequent stress carries a risk of developing issues with their mental health. Learning how to relax, adopting breathing techniques, meditation and frequent exercise all help to bust stress. As stress is a common condition and doesn’t carry a threat to a person’s lifespan, many insurers will accept applications for stress life insurance.

Finding stress life insurance with the right insurer

If you are already suffering from or have suffered from stress, you do not want to make your symptoms worse by worrying about where you can secure life insurance cover. As stress is such a common condition, many insurers are likely to accept applications. All insurers however have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for stress life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. As life expectancy isn’t shortened as a result of stress, many insurers will accept applications for stress life insurance. iLL can help you find the right insurer for your personal circumstances at the right price.

Costs for stress life insurance premiums

Stress is considered by insurers to be a low-risk mental health condition, therefore many insurers will accept applications at standard rates. Insurers will generally base premiums on your age, whether you are receiving counselling for stress, the triggers of your stress, how severe your symptoms are and whether you are on any medications. This will determine the level of risk you pose to an insurer. Prices from insurers will always vary depending on who you speak to, which is why iLL is the ideal place to find the right stress life insurance specialist.
You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if you have severe stress which has led to a mental health condition and other physical symptoms, an insurer may want to apply a loading fee should you make a claim to them in future.
