What is my BMI?

Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on your weight and height. Life Assurance companies will use it to help assess your health, and having a high or very low BMI could mean your premiums are increased. Alongside your BMI providers will also consider your age, waist measurement and any other health conditions when looking at your application
Some providers are more lenient than others and this is where our expert advisers can help you find the best policy.
