Critical Illness cover: the critical facts for protecting you and your family

It is important to understand the different types of protection available to you and your family, should your circumstances suddenly change; if you were to become seriously ill and could not earn a living, would this pose a financial burden on those closest to you?

This is not a nice question to consider, however a vital one if you believe your loved ones might struggle to pay the mortgage or meet the day-to-day costs of living and running a household if you were seriously ill. In this case, critical illness insurance is a ‘no brainer’, providing a lifeline if you develop a serious medical condition.

The facts are that we are four times more likely to suffer a serious illness than die before the age of 65; a critical illness such as a heart attack or cancer, strikes one in five men and one in four women before 65 – this is where critical illness insurance can help.

So, what is critical illness cover?

Critical illness insurance is designed to pay out if you suffer from one of a range of serious illnesses covered by the policy. Unlike income protection, which also covers illness, there is no requirement to be off work for a claim to be successful; the trigger for a critical illness claim is the fact that you have been diagnosed with an illness that is covered by the policy.
