    Hello Jbitossi, it is possible to get life insurance as well as income insurance, but you'll be asked several different questions when applying and this may include a report from your doctor, which the insurance pay for, and with income insurance, if it has been accepted and you're paying the premium, but unfortunately become ill, especially for mental reasons, then the insurance company will want a report from your doctor, the medication you've been prescribed as well as a report from your psychologist/psychiatrist detailing your condition and the predicted time you may be off work.

    After a certain time, they will once again need reports from these doctors just to be updated, then a decision will be made once again.

    These insurance companies need to be thorough and so does the client making sure all the documents are provided and up to date.

    Good luck.

    Geoff.
