Family Carers : Occupation On Application Forms

On many online and written application forms for many services , including insurance , entering FAMILY CARER as an occupation does not compute with most.

From the drop down menu on some , none of the " Occupations " fit , and many family carers would shoe horn in the occupation which fitted the best.

Assume an application for £ 100K + life insurance policy ... a sizeable chunk in any readers mind.

Could a claim be rejected due to an " Error " on the original application ... said claimant was not , say , an employed care worker , but " Merely " a family carer ?

An error which could change the sums involved or any other material consideration.

Any case law on this ?

Or , a potential time bomb for one , or more , family carers ?
