Truck driver critical illness cover

Similarly to truck driver life insurance, truck driver critical illness cover should be fairly easy to get. Often there will be no issues getting cover if your occupation is not extremely high-risk then you should be able to get cover. However, the more risk your job contains, the higher the premiums. There might be more detailed information required for your application if your work is high-risk, if you work with transporting of dangerous materials for example.

Truck driver income protection

Overall, you should be able to get income protection, and in most cases if you have a low-risk truck driving job then your premiums should be similar to standard cases. There may be some exceptions to this, for example if you have an extremely high-risk truck driver occupation, this may affect the premiums that you are offered; and in extremely rare cases your application may get rejected.
