What is critical illness cover?
Critical illness cover is a form of insurance that offers protection should you be diagnosed with a critical illness during the term of your policy.
How does critical illness cover work?
Critical illness cover pays out a tax-free lump sum if you’re diagnosed with an insured medical condition. It’s not the same as life insurance, which pays money to a person or people you name if you pass away.
You can spend the money how you wish. You can use it to clear debts, pay medical bills or adapt your home to your particular needs.
