We never think a critical illness is going to happen to us, especially when we feel fit and healthy, but it can and does.
If the worst does happen, it's important to make sure you're financially protected against the impact a critical illness could have on you and your family. Critical illness cover can be added when you take out life insurance, which starts from as little as £6 a month.
Our Critical Illness Cover at a glance:
|Critical Illness Cover is designed to pay out your chosen amount of cover if you're diagnosed with a specified critical illness that we cover during the length of your policy. It can be added when you take out life insurance, at an additional cost.|
|Additional Benefits||Additional Benefits such as Children's Critical Illness Cover and Accident Hospitalisation Benefit are included at no extra charge|
|Fixed premiums||Your premiums won't go up, unless you alter your policy, so you'll always know how much you're paying.|
|Cash value||This is not a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made.|
