Why you should consider Critical Illness Cover






Everybody wants to feel that, even if they were diagnosed with a critical illness, they’d be able to cope financially. Critical Illness cover can help minimise the financial impact on you and your family if you become critically ill. Being diagnosed with a critical illness can affect anyone at any age, strike at any time and can turn lives upside down.


Critical illness cover, either on its own or as part of a life assurance policy, is designed to pay you a tax-free lump sum on the diagnosis of certain specified life-threatening or debilitating (but not necessarily fatal) conditions, such as a heart attack, stroke, certain types/stages of cancer and multiple sclerosis.


If you are single with no dependants, critical illness cover can be used to pay off your mortgage, which means that you would have fewer bills or a lump sum to use if you became very unwell. And if you are part of a couple, it can provide much-needed financial support at a time of emotional stress.


The good news is that medical advances mean more people than ever are surviving conditions that might have killed earlier generations. Critical illness cover can provide cash to allow you to pursue a less stressful lifestyle while you recover from illness, or you can use it for any other purpose.
