Can You Be Denied Life Insurance Due To Depression?

By sunnytrails Latest Activity January 10 at 6:17 pm Views 100 Replies 1


I would like to see my doctor about my depression and anxiety, but I’m afraid that would go on my record and that it may affect my life insurance in the future. I live in Canada. Does anyone know if this is something that could happen, and is it legal?

    Hi sunnytrails, very interesting question. I wish I knew how the system in Canada works so that I could give you a helpful response. I know my clients are often stressed when applying for life insurance, worried about how their diagnosis might impact whether they are accepted or not. I hope you will keep us posted on what you learn.
