Sports Financial Services specialise in offering expert advice for dangerous sports and high risk occupations. This includes army life insurance, critical illness cover and income protection.
Many people who have a hazardous occupation will need specialist insurance cover in place to ensure that their family, home or businesses are protected. It’s important to consider that when looking for army life insurance, the added risk of injury and threat to life means there is a higher possibility of additional underwriting requirements and even restrictions on cover. These generally depend on your position in the forces and whether or not you are on active duty for example.

Army life insurance Underwriting
As with most high risk or hazardous occupations, life insurance for Armed Forces can potentially attract increases in premiums or possible special terms depending on the role and levels of activity. Fortunately in most cases we see for Army life insurance there is often a strong possibility of being able to get cover and often at the same rates as someone with a lower risk occupation. It can be more difficult to get life insurance during periods of conflict or where the individual is involved in higher risk activities. Some of the main considerations for underwriting life insurance for Armed Forces are:
- What is your role
- Are you under orders or in active duty
Several other standard factors which will determine the premiums you would pay for Armed Forces life insurance are:
- Amount of cover (£’s)
- Term of cover (years)
- Type of policy

Army critical illness cover
Most cases we have dealt with for Army 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 individual’s 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. If you have previously struggled to get Army critical illness cover or have been declined cover then you should contact one of our experts.
Army 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.
