Critical Illness Insurance pays out a tax-free lump sum on the diagnosis of certain life-threatening or debilitating (but not fatal) conditions including heart attack, stroke, cancer and major organ transplants.
This list will vary depending on the insurer, as will the exclusions for making a claim.
We will often advise clients to consider Critical Illness Insurance when they take on a major commitment, like a mortgage, or start a family. However, since we’d all like to have our financial commitments lightened if we were to suffer a serious illness or injury, the cover is relevant for most of us at any time.
If you already have Critical Illness Insurance you should think carefully before you cancel your existing policy and take out a new one.
