Critical Illness Insurance
The ideal solution if you must take a temporary leave of absence from your work due to a critical illness, which will affect your finances and standard of living.
About Critical Illness Insurance
Offers you a lump-sum benefit payment that allows you to take the time to rest in the event of a critical illness. This coverage provides you with the means to fulfill your financial commitments as well as to cover your healthcare expenses. Most critical illness policies will cover 25 to 26 different illnesses...with cancer, heart attack, and stroke being the big 3. It seems like nowadays everyone has had a family member or friend impacted by one of these three. And with our ever improving health care and medication, most are surviving these illnesses.
Critical illness allows you to cover any unforeseen costs and loss of income until you are able to get back on your feet. At the time of application, you are able to choose the length of term you would like to lock your policy and insurance cost in for.
Some features such as Return of Premium upon Death and Return of Premium upon cancellation can be added to certain policies. Return of Premium upon Death is just like it sounds. If the insured were to pass away without ever collecting the critical illness benefit, all of the premiums will be refunded to the beneficiary of the policy.
Return of Premium upon cancellation occurs when the insured reaches a certain period in the policy when they can cancel the policy and have all of the premiums paid towards the policy refunded to the insured.
