Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system – it is a lifelong condition.
There are over 100,000 people in the UK who have MS and diagnosis is usually made between the ages of 20 and 40.
MS is a complex condition and it has many symptoms.
These symptoms might include; fatigue, vision problems and difficulties with walking, but MS affects people in different ways so those who are diagnosed with the same type of MS will not necessarily experience the same symptoms.
The average age of clinical onset, is between the ages of 30 and 33. This coincides to when many people are having life changing events such as marriage, birth of children, and purchase of a home. This is actually the age range when most people begin to explore life insurance options.
With the average age people get MS, and the many life changes in this age range, you can truly see why many people diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis see life insurance as a mandatory part of their financial plan.
