I tried to get term life from Aflac just in case something bad happens to me while my children are young. I ride my bike to and from work run quite a bit. Pretty healthy.

I smoke. :) no problem Aflac says that will only be about20 extra bucks a month.

UC..................screech brakes halr, tons of questions, 3 week wait. They say no life insurance for you. Bummer.

Does anyone have any life insurance ideas? I did a search and came up short. blush

I had life insurance about 10 years ago and I am trying to remember the company that I went thru. It was a lot more expensive since I had UC but we had to drop it because we couldn't afford it anymore. If I can remember the name then I will let you know - I'm not even sure if they are still in business to tell the truth.

I just did a search myself and if you put in high risk term life insurance in the search bar, there are alot of hits.

See if a professional association you could belong to has something. It might even be worth joining one to get some insurance.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.
Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, then Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.

I'd like more input on this as well since I need to increase my life insurance. Will call my State Farm agent though.

Thanks

I have some through my employer (only $150k) and I tried to get more last year ($1mil) when I was really ill. I went through my financial advisor and he sent in applications through 5 different places. Two denied me outright and the other three came in with really high premiums. I don't have any kids (am married) so it isn't a huge priority right now. He said to try again maybe next year when I'm not on prednisone and haven't had any procedures done for over a year (like colonoscopy.)

I also ride my bike to work everyday!
