People with diabetes will, from today, potentially be able to secure more favourable equity release packages than previously available, thanks to Diabetes UK.
The charity has been able to negotiate a better deal through a partnership with Key Retirement Solutions and Heath Lambert.
Help with finding a better deal
“People with long-term conditions often have trouble finding or are unaware of more favourable insurance or equity release deals,” explains Diabetes UK Affinity Products Manager, Peter Hallett.
“Living with a serious, long-term condition that can lead to heart disease, blindness, amputation, kidney failure and stroke, can be very stressful. Unfair financial discrimination and the associated worry can affect physical and mental health, often exacerbating existing problems.
“In offering independent advice and a fairer way of releasing cash from their homes, our product has the potential to improve the quality of life for people with diabetes and their families.”
