Critical Illness Cover

Many are more inclined to purchase Life Insurance, but what about Critical Illness Cover?

The reality is you are much more likely to develop a critical illness than you are to die. This cover pays out a lump sum if you are diagnosed with a listed critical illness under your policy. This money could be used for anything, medical treatment, cover adaptations to the home, generally paying bills – anything!

The following illnesses are usually covered by Critical Illness Cover:

  • Aorta graft surgery – requiring surgical replacement
