Critical Illness Cover

Critical Illness Cover provides a tax-free lump sum that will help cover essential costs of living in the event of you getting a critical illness preventing your return to work and affecting your financial security.

Critical illness insurance is there to cover you if you are diagnosed with one of several pre-defined conditions. These conditions usually include cancer, coronary artery bypass, heart attack, kidney failure, major organ transplant, multiple sclerosis and stroke, although it is always advisable to check the wording of your policy carefully to ensure that you understand the full extent of your cover.

People often confuse critical illness cover with Income Protection Insurance. A critical illness cover pays out in one lump sum if you’re diagnosed with a critical illness, whereas income protection insurance pays out in the form of monthly instalments, with the amount received depending on the salary you earned before you were forced to stop working.

When you take out critical illness cover, you’ll be asked whether you want your cover to be integrated with or independent from your life insurance policy. If you choose an integrated policy, your provider will only pay out once. This means that if you need to claim for critical illness cover, you or your family will not be able to make a life insurance claim on the same policy.
