Air Force critical illness cover
Most cases we have dealt with for Armed Forces personnel looking for critical illness cover, we have been able to get the cover and often at a similar price to people with standard risk occupations. In some cases where the individuals role is considered to be higher risk there could be additional underwriting requirements for Armed Forces critical illness cover which can result in an additional premium loadings, exclusions or even potential decline.
As with most hazardous or dangerous occupations, it is possible that you could be able to get the cover you need from some insurance providers where others may decline cover. Armed Forces critical illness cover is exactly the same and sometimes even more so due to the fact that some insurance providers simply do not like to accept this type of occupation.

Air Force income protection
We generally find that Armed Forces income protection cover is very rarely available unless your role is very low risk (e.g. Administration or Office Staff). Unfortunately most roles in the Armed Forces are considered to be too high risk for an income protection policy for the vast majority of insurance providers. There are some specialist insurance products available which can offer some cover for Armed Forces income protection so it is worth asking us about it.
