The trade body has also published a new guide on countries with high HIV prevalence and insurance.
It says the move is to ensure that people in civil partnerships are treated the same as married couples.
ABI assistant director of health and protection insurance Nick Kirwan says: “This builds on the good work done by the insurance industry to ensure lesbian and gay people are treated fairly, and have access to practical information about insurance.”
Compass managing director Chris Morgan, a specialist IFA for the gay community and member of the ABI’s HIV Expert Working Group, says the amendments clarifiy the industry’s position on civil partnerships.
Morgan says: “I am very proud to be associated with the new Consumer Guide. It is extremely important that information is available to the gay community on life and protection insurance issues.
“I am proud to have played my part in achieving what I believe to be full equality in life insurance products.”
