Do EA work with providers of Life Insurance also? I am keen to explore options for this type of cover, but do not want a terrible deal based on my epilepsy.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Gemma, 

Thank you for your question. 

At present we don’t have any life insurance schemes. 

We have been speaking recently with a company called Fish Insurance. We can’t recommend them as such as we haven’t yet worked with them, but they do have a life insurance product available for people with pre-existing / long-term health conditions. It may be worth you giving them a try. There's more info on their website  or you can call Fish Insurance on 0333 331 3838.

If you haven’t already, you could also try a search on the internet for life insurance pre-existing medical conditions comparison websites. 

If we can be of any more help, please feel free to contact us again. You can do this directly either by email helpline@epilespsy.org.uk or phone the Epilepsy Action Helpline freephone 0808 800 5050. Our helpline is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am until 5.30pm.
