Disqualified Life Insurance Policy

Disqualified Life Insurance Policy: Protection and Insurance Advice 

Although a life assurance policy may be qualifying when it is taken out, it is possible to make changes which would disqualify the policy.  For example:

  • Increasing the sum assured
  • Changing the premium
  • Early surrender

Once a policy has been disqualified the tax treatment is the same as for a non qualifying life assurance policy.

Please see the specific rules for whole of life, endowment or term policies

Disqualification of tax privileges should be noted when you are making significant changes to policies such as reducing premiums, changing the length of the policy or encashing it early.
