Critical Illness Protection

Critical illness cover, also known as critical illness insurance, is a long-term insurance policy to cover specific serious illnesses listed within a policy. Should the worst happen, it gives a tax-free lump sum, a one off payment, to help pay for your mortgage or rent, debts, or pay for alterations to your home such as wheelchair access should you need it.

What is critical illness cover?

Critical illness insurance will pay out if you get one of the specific medical conditions or injuries listed in the policy. But be aware that not all conditions are covered and policy will also state how serious the condition must be.

Examples of critical illnesses that might be covered include:

What isn't covered?

Some serious illnesses might not be covered, for example, some cancers and conditions not listed in the policy.

You probably won't be covered for health problems you knew you had before you took out the insurance, and this type of insurance does not pay out if you die.

Do you need it?

State benefits might not be enough to replace your income if something goes wrong. If you're eligible, welfare benefits range from around £70 a week to just over £100 a week.

Critical illness cover could be considered if you don't have savings to tide you over if become seriously ill or disabled, or if you don't have an employee benefits package to cover a longer time off work due to sickness.

How much does it cost?

Your monthly payments will depend on a number of factors, including:
