If Your Child Has Special Needs, Can They Be Insured?

Raising a child with special needs is a rocky journey for any family, with challenges related to the child’s development, health, education and much more. Imagine facing additional barriers when it comes to purchasing insurance to protect your child - how does that impact your child and your family? As we look ahead to International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December, we explore why inclusivity within the insurance landscape is important, and how a personal accident insurance plan for children with special needs came about.
