How would a critical illness, like a stroke or a heart attack, affect your finances?
Our Critical Illness Cover is designed to pay either a lump sum or an income if you suffer a critical illness like a stroke or heart attack, providing funds to help you keep up with mortgage or rental payments, debts and bills. It means you can take the time to recover fully without the anxiety of money worries.
One in two people born after 1960 in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime1
Fit? Well? Healthy? Unfortunately, every year many people have their lives turned upside down (and their financial security undermined) by a serious illness such as cancer, heart disease or a stroke.
A Critical Illness Insurance Policy is designed to pay a sum of money on you being diagnosed with a 'critical' illness, as specified in the policy terms and conditions, thus providing funds to help you repay your mortgage and other debts and bills until you can work again. Alternatively, the policy proceeds could be used to pay any additional care costs that may be incurred as a result of the illness.
Take the time to recover fully without the anxiety of worrying about money.
