Critical Illness insurance is a policy designed to pay a one off lump sum to you directly if you are diagnosed with one of a specified list of illnesses, as detailed in the Key Facts document for the provider. The lump sum can be used to repay debts such as a mortgage, or towards alterations to property, or towards moving property, should you need to.
Not all conditions are covered, it is not based on your ability to work, but meeting the criteria set out on the inception of the policy.
All providers differ on the following:
- Amount of conditions covered
- Criteria for claims against the most claimed upon illnesses
- Ability for cover to keep up with inflation
- Life element including or additional cost
- Additional benefits (various)
- Children’s cover
- Treatment of existing conditions and exclusions
Depending on your budget, and need, the provider required could be different. The comprehensiveness is not always linked to premium and exclusions can apply with existing conditions but differ with each provider.
