Legal and General cancelled both my life insurance policies because of my Primary Sjogren Syndrome!

Does anyone know of any insurance company who will offer life insurance cover to someone with Primary Sjogren Syndrome and other health problems? Legal and General cancelled both my life insurance policies because of my health problems.

My existing life insurance policy started in 2006, I was paying £51.45 per month for the existing policy, but the policy will expire in 2021. I took out a new life insurance policy to replace the existing policy, but because of my health problems, the payment was increased to £93.48 per month. Months later Legal and general cancelled both my policies and left me without a life insurance cover. I am worried that insurance companies will not cover me. . I appreciate any advice you can give me.

    Glenna, there are so many things that affect insurance coverage: age, other health problems(like high BP, other diseases, etc.). I'm 75 and no longer have life insurance. I've already paid for my own funeral, so that my family does not have to worry. You can live many years with Sjogren's. It usually attaches to other auto-immune diseases: in my case, polymyalgia, which I've had for 23 years. I'm in Canada, and things must be different where you are. I hope you can shop around and find coverage.
