Will Macular Degeneration Affect My Life Insurance Premiums?
Macular degeneration or Age-Related Macular Degeneration is a disease that gradually destroys the macula and central vision. There are some treatment options for wet AMD, which can delay the progression of the disease. My grandmother unfortunately has AMD and has received some of the treatment options that are available. It has helped delayed the progression of her vision loss, but it is by no means a cure.
The good news as far as purchasing life insurance with this disease is that this macular degeneration will typically not affect your life insurance premiums. You can still qualify for the best rate with AMD if you would other qualify. That’s good news. Especially as we continue to live longer and more and more people are being diagnosed with this terrible disease that slowly takes away your vision. Hopefully there will be a cure on the horizon so everyone with this condition including my grandmother can get their lives back.
