    Hi Pinkelle,

    I am sorry to hear that the ombudsman is not assisting you. It really p****s me off that insurers are happy to take your money but look for any excuse to avoid paying out.

    I know Barry. It's really dragged me down today as we have a mortgage and loan, I would have really liked to pay a chunk off! Don't need money worries with all that's going on with my health.!

    I'm sorry Pink that your claim was denied.

    I know my critical illness payout made our lives considerably easier for the first few years. ALS was one of the specified illnesses on my policy so the claim was straightforward.

    It would have taken the strain off us as well. At least I'm lucky to still be able to stay in work. Bloody good job!! x
