Last updated: 23 March 2021

The spread of Coronavirus is an unprecedented global crisis. Insurers know this is an incredibly difficult time for families and businesses as people seek to make the right decisions for their own health and that of their family.

It is also a time when people are trying to understand what their insurance covers them for. Insurers are supporting and advising their customers constantly. Their main priority is to make sure their customers can continue to have their claims paid in this challenging environment and they are doing everything in their power to keep their operations running as fully as possible and to offer clear and up-to-date information to their customers. 

There are some claims being made that having the Covid-19 vaccine will impact your life insurance cover. This is false. Receiving a vaccination against Covid will not impact your insurance cover, be it life insurance, private medical insurance or other forms of insurance.

If you are unsure what your policy covers you for then check with your insurer or insurance broker.
