Informed Choice Radio 089: Kathryn & Alan Knowles, Life Insurance & ZombiesWhat does The Walking Dead have to do with life insurance?

In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I talk to Kathryn and Alan Knowles from the Special Risks Bureau.

Kathyrn and Alan specialise in high risk insurance; getting insurance cover at an affordable price for people with health conditions, who engage in hazardous pastimes or have risky jobs.

In this interview, we talk about how high risk insurance differs from ordinary insurance, what being a high insurance risk means in practice, and how Kathyrn and Alan have used characters from The Walking Dead to raise awareness of insurance needs.

Here’s my conversation with Kathyrn and Alan Knowles for episode 89 of Informed Choice Radio.

Some questions I ask

-What is high risk insurance and how does it differ from low risk insurance?

-Do people with medical conditions or those working in hazardous occupations sometimes assume that they would not be eligible for insurance, and therefore ignore financial protection entirely?

-What does being a high risk for insurance mean in practice? Higher premiums to pay? Less choice when it comes to products? Restrictions on the types of cover you can get?

-If someone is a high risk, can they still go directly to insurance companies to apply for cover? Is there a lot of choice in this specialist market?

-You recently launched a new campaign, ‘The Walking Dead meets the Special Risks Bureau’. What inspired this and what was it all about?
