A critical illness policy pays out a tax free lump sum on diagnosis for any of the specified serious illnesses – around 100, including cancer, heart attack or stroke. There are additional benefits available with these policies which can be lifechanging when called upon.
The insurance market can be complex and confusing. Price comparison sites can make it easier to search and compare critical illness policies, but there’s such a large choice and variety of products and you might end up paying for something that doesn’t quite fit your circumstances.
Don’t leave it to chance, seek professional, face-to-face advice from someone who will get to know your circumstances, your family history and your likely protection requirements and recommend critical illness cover that’s right for you.
Critical illness insurance often comes as an optional addition to a life insurance policy, but can also be purchased on its own.
