Group Critical Illness Insurance Cover
We don’t tend to stop and think about what we would do if diagnosed with a critical illness but it affects a staggering number of us. 1 in 4 people are diagnosed with a critical illness between the age of 30 and 60.
Critical Illness Protection has become more and more important since it was first introduced in 1983. Originally, it provided cover for four medical conditions. Today, policies will typically cover up to 40 illnesses.
What is Group Critical Illness Cover?
Critical Illness Cover pays out a tax free lump sum upon the diagnosis of a life threatening illness such as cancer, a heart attack or stroke. During such a difficult time, the fact that your employee’s financial obligations are covered will be a huge relief for the individual concerned.
When diagnosed with a life threatening illness, the last thing someone needs to worry about is their financial obligations. The tax free lump sum payment can be used to cover the cost of medical treatments or even to make alterations to their current living conditions.
