Will income protection payout for Anorexia?

If your policy does not exclude anorexia-related problems, then if you suffer any issues relating to your anorexia that cause you to take time off work, you should be able to claim on income protection.

You will be able to get anorexia income protection depending on the severity of your condition – i.e., if there are no major health concerns and your BMI is within the normal range.

Income protection is usually designed to pay out for 12 or 24 months to cover your salary while you’re unable to work.

Some of the main reasons you might need to claim on income protection cover with anorexia are:

  • Brain and nerve issues such as seizures
  • Heart failure
  • Weak immune system
  • Difficulties with concentration and memory
