What is Serious Illness Cover?
Serious Illness cover (sometimes called critical illness cover) provides you with financial support if you are diagnosed with a serious illness as defined by your policy. It pays out a tax free, cash lump sum if you are diagnosed with a life -threatening illness such as cancer, heart attack or stroke. The benefit of having a serious illness plan is that once the payment is made out to you, it gives you time to focus on what really matters, getting better. You can take out Stand Alone or Additional Serious Illness and you can add it onto your Mortgage Plan also. A little illness cover might go a long way in helping you out.
