Critical Illness Cover
Having sorted your Life Assurance needs, what else might you want to consider? One very important option is Critical Illness Cover. There was a time, before recent advances in health-care and the creation of the NHS, when a critical illness almost certainly lead to death. Often within weeks or just a couple of months. This is usually no longer the case, with those diagnosed often going on to eventually lead normal lives, after a period of treatment & recuperation. The financial issues are that the debts (mortgage etc.), and living costs do not go away. A critical illness plan pays out in a similar way to life insurance but instead of paying out on death, the sum assured is paid out on diagnosis of a covered disease. It is true that Critical Illness plans are more expensive than the equivalent Life Assurance, but on average they are four times more likely to result in a claim.
