Critical illness cover

A helping hand

Looking out for our own health is essential, and that doesn’t just stop with finances. Taking out a Critical Illness policy is a great way of knowing you and your loved ones are secure, should you become ill.

What is critical illness cover?

Critical Illness cover is an insurance policy which you pay a monthly premium from when the policy is taken out. Then, if you are diagnosed with one of the health conditions named on the policy, a tax-free lump sum will be paid to you to give financial stability while you are on the mend.

Our clients usually choose to take this type of policy out in order to keep themselves or their family afloat should they find themselves out of work due to an illness. If you’re looking for a critical illness policy, come and speak to us about what plan works for you, or get a quick quote now.
