When nicotine replacement products first arrived in Ireland life insurance companies had to make a decision, do they charge Nicotine Replacement users full smokers rates which are obviously more expensive than those charged to non-smokers? and for a time many insurance providers were offering non-smoker rates once you were also tobacco-free for 12 consecutive months!
However, all this changed in 2018 with all Irish operating life insurance companies classing e-cigarette and nicotine replacement users as smokers. Aviva being the last insurer to change their definition where they were previously offering non-smoker rates.
