Critical Illness Cover pays out a Tax-Free lump sum if you are diagnosed with a serious illness, offering additional protection to Life Insurance.
Each provider has a different list of critical illnesses that they will pay out for. In general, it covers you against most cancers, heart attack, stroke, kidney or liver failure and multiple sclerosis.
The product is designed to pay up to 70% of a working individual’s annual pre-tax income as a monthly benefit (tax free) should they be off work due to an unexpected or sudden illness or injury.
With an Income Protection policy in place, you are not restricted on what type of illnesses or injuries you can claim on. You can claim as many times as you want throughout the policy term, with short and long-term options are available starting from 1yr, 2yrs, 5yrs or full cover which usually insures you up to retirement age.
If you’re looking for insurance that is specifically designed to cover your mortgage payments, then we suggest considering Mortgage Life Insurance Cover.
Mortgage Life Insurance Cover is put in place to ensure your outstanding mortgage is paid off in the event of death, giving your loved ones one less thing to worry about.
To ensure you are properly covered, you simply need to tell us how much is left to pay on your mortgage and over what term. That is the exact amount of cover and term length you will need to take out.
This type of life insurance is what is referred to as a ‘Decreasing Term policy’ – as the amount paid out decreases over time to keep in line with your outstanding mortgage balance.
Mortgage Life Insurance can be added onto your Critical Illness Cover.
