Smoking doesn’t just damage your health; it also damages your bank account. Smokers can pay up to double as much for life insurance compared with non-smokers but not all is lost. You can cut the cost of your premiums if you give up smoking and don’t use tobacco related products for 12 months. Being a non-smoker may mean you get better levels of cover and you can save yourself money.

How much information do I need to give?

When you apply for life insurance you will be asked if you smoke or not and whether or not you occasionally smoke or when you lasted smoked or used nicotine products. It’s vital to be honest right from the start of your inquiry in life cover. If you leave out information or withhold something it could mean that your policy is invalid and therefore will not pay out which can be especially important for your loved ones. Insurers may investigate your claim and through evidence such as medical reports, you may be found out. Here at the Cheapest Life Insurance we aim to find great life insurance for both smokers and non-smokers. Finding the right cover that truly represents your circumstances and lifestyles is vital. Whether you smoke occasionally or you are a heavy smoker, insurers need to know.  But remember, non-smokers are independent from tobacco and nicotine products completely for 12 months.

What happens if I become a non-smoker?
