Critical illness is often overlooked as we never like to think about becoming critically ill ourselves. Unfortunately, this can strike at any age and to anyone.
If you or your loved ones were to become unable to work, having some protection from critical illness can help ease the burden of any financial problem that may arise.
With cover in place, if you are diagnosed with an illness covered by your policy you will typically receive a tax-free, one-off payment to help support the change to your life and ease the financial concerns that may come from it.
From paying off your mortgage or covering any loss of earnings, to making any adjustments to your home to support your illness, this type of policy could be an essential investment to reduce the financial burden placed on your family should the unfortunate happen.
