Critical Illness

Critical Illness insurance protects you from the costs of being unable to work due to illnesses against conditions such as heart attacks, strokes and advanced cancers.Known as 'Critical Illnesses', these conditions don't always prove fatal but they do normally result in a dramatic effect on your life, which may mean you are unable to work and enjoy the things you did before. It may also mean that you need specialist medical care or surgery, for which you could be waiting a long time on an NHS waiting list. The cover itself will pay a lump sum when you are diagnosed with one of the specified critical illnesses on the insurance companies list of illnesses covered.

Why would I need Critical illness insurance?

Critical Illness Insurance is something which should be considered by everyone but especially if you have a mortgage, debts or a family that would suffer financially without your income.

Do all the insurance companies cover the same critical illnesses?

No, not all insurance companies cover the same illnesses as part of their Critical Illness insurance. They all have to cover the Association of British Insurance guidelines but above and beyond those many companies choose to cover additional illnesses.
