Is Critical Illness Insurance worth it?

Nothing in life is certain, and the diagnosis of a critical illness such as cancer or a stroke is a reality that many individuals have to face, however much they hope not to. That’s why a robust critical illness policy is highly valued by employees.

Critical Illness insurance offers a ‘living benefit’ to your employees, which is paid as a one-off and tax-free lump sum if they are diagnosed with a condition covered by the policy and they survive for 14 days or more.

But what’s actually included in this policy? We offer multiple cover options, including:

  • Treatment costs
  • Nursing care
  • Financial commitments
  • Any changes that your employee’s illness necessitates to their lifestyle or home.

As well as that, our Life & Health team can help you find the right critical illness cover for your organisation, so you can offer it as a benefit to your employees – with policies that cover everything from treatment costs to necessary lifestyle changes.
