Life Insurance

Obtaining life insurance with type 1 Gaucher disease is possible but often a struggle, and information found online is outdated and difficult to understand. As we know best, living with type 1 Gaucher non-neuropathic disease and receiving treatment does not shorten our lifespan. However, obtaining life insurance can still be a struggle despite the importance of having it to protect our families and loved ones. The GCA has worked with Underwriters Brokerage Service (UBS) to enable patients to apply for and obtain life insurance despite a diagnosis of type 1 Gaucher disease. To start the process, download and complete the forms and send them to the address/fax provided, attention Bob Katzen.

GCA has no connection or affiliation to UBS and does not guarantee the successful application for life insurance. GCA is not a licensed insurance broker and offers this information to the community solely as a convenience. All questions and comments regarding the application for life insurance should be directed to Bob Katzen at UBS.
