What is Life and Critical Illness Insurance?
Critical illness insurance (also known as critical illness cover) will pay out to
your family if you have a serious medical condition that is covered under
Life insurance and critical illness cover are usually sold alongside each other, to ensure that your family is protected if you fall critically ill. When the two types of insurance are sold together, it is usually better value for the customer as the price is brought down, almost like a multi-buy discount.The tax-free sum that you receive as part of your critical illness cover differs from that of life insurance as it is given after diagnosis. Life Insurance Cover can be purchased either by an individual or can come as a benefit from working for a company. However, the latter isn’t guaranteed as it is only certain companies that offer this perk.
Life Insurance cover is a must for those that want to guarantee that their family members are taken care of after they are gone.
