What is serious illness cover?

Some illnesses can have a significant impact on your life. They can stop you from working and your recovery may require assistance and time. That’s where serious illness cover comes in. Serious illness cover (sometimes called critical illness cover) provides you with financial support if you are diagnosed with a serious illness.

How it works

A serious illness plan is designed to pay out a lump should you be unfortunate enough to contract one of over 40 specified serious illnesses, such as cancer, heart attack stroke etc. The lump sum payable from your serious illness plan is typically used as a replacement income or to pay a mortgage or cover any medical bills that you might have. Allowing you to hopefully recover and take away any financial stress for you and family.

What are the Benefits?
