Critical Illness Cover
Family is important; that’s why it’s best to get expert advice to help protect what matters, when it matters!
What is it?
A Critical Illness plan is designed to pay out a lump sum on the diagnosis of certain specified illnesses. It is often ‘bolted on’ to a life assurance policy as an additional benefit but can also be a standalone plan.
Who is it for?
This type of plan is designed for those individuals or families who want a lump sum if they are diagnosed with a serious illness. As an example of where this lump sum could be used is to repay a loan, mortgage, or perhaps pay for time off work and protecting your lifestyle. The lump sum could even be used to pay for any necessary alterations to your home and to assist with additional expenses that may be incurred due to diagnosis of a critical illness condition.
