Children’s Critical Illness Cover

Children are covered as part of their parents’ critical illness policy for no extra cost. For parents who want additional cover for their children we offer Children’s Critical Illness Extra at an additional cost. Terms and conditions apply.

The conditions covered include many childhood cancers, stroke and benign brain tumour, which are amongst the conditions most claimed for and paid out.

Cover applies to a natural child, legally adopted child or stepchild of the adult covered.

In 2020 we paid 97% of all Children's Critical Illness Cover claims, with an average customer payout of £14,981.
