Any advice would be really appreciated. I've a Critical Illness policy which doesn't cover me until I meet a set of conditions around permanent disability.
A while ago some forum members reported their policies as paying out on diagnosis of Parkinsons and suggested I check out the FSA best practise that suggests just this and to see if my insurer had adopted the FSA guidelines.
I've done that now, have a letter confirming definitions - unchanged. So that's that, I just have to leave it.
Before I put it to one side though I thought I'd just come back to the forum to see if anyone has experienced differently with a Countrywide Assured policy. I'm grasping at straws I know, but it's an important piece of the financial jigsaw as I am reaching a crossroads on ill health retirement. I took the policy out over 20 years ago - and I guess I simply have to reconcile myself about the lack of Parkinson's cover for the time being instead of fretting away at it.
Just because I'd like it to be different, doesn't make it so!
