Unfortunately, we are all affected by critical illness in one way or another, so it is important to put measures in place to protect your loved ones. Critical Illness Cover (CIC) financially supports individuals and families in the event of being diagnosed with a specific illness or medical condition during the policy, providing a tax-free lump sum.
According to Cancer Research, one in two UK citizens will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. Critical Illness Cover (CIC) is an ideal back-up plan if you find yourself in the worst-case scenario to ensure you can keep paying the bills and look after your loved ones.
Critical Illness Insurance provides peace of mind that you and your loved ones will be protected should the worst happen, with the added benefit that this cover pays out while you are still alive.
Critical Illness Cover allows you to keep up with your lifestyle costs in the event of you becoming seriously ill. For a full list of covered conditions, please refer to your policy booklet.
People often confuse Income Protection Insurance with Critical Illness Cover but the two differ in the way that you benefit from the cover. Critical Illness Cover pays out in one lump sum, whereas Income Protection insurance pays out in monthly instalments. The amount you receive with an Income Protection policy is linked to your salary. Income Protection Insurance helps to protect you against day-to-day illnesses and health reasons to be unable to work, whereas Critical Illness Cov is for more serious, potentially life-changing illnesses.
