Frequently Asked Questions

Life insurance can be confusing sometimes, so we are here to help.

What is critical illness insurance?

Critical illness cover provides you with a tax-free lump sum should you be diagnosed with one of the critical illnesses covered by your policy. The tax-free lump sum is there to help you cover costs of treatments, mortgage payments and other outgoings.

What are the chances I will need critical illness cover?

Critical Illness is not something anyone wants to think about, but sadly it is a reality for many people and a lump sum payout can be a real lifeline at such a testing time.

The reality is:

• 1 in 2 UK people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime (Cancer Research UK)
• 280 per day are admitted to hospital with a heart attack (that’s one every 5 minutes). (British Heart Foundation)
• There are more than 100,000 strokes in the UK each year (one every five minutes) (British Heart Foundation)
• Around 100,000 individuals in the UK are multiple sclerosis. This is a disease that attacks the young (20 – 30 years old)

Who needs critical illness protection?

Critical illness cover offers a safety net for anyone who doesn’t have sufficient savings or employee benefits in place to meet all your essential outgoings indefinitely – in the event of a critical illness or injury.

Life insurance only usually pays out on the event of your death, when in reality finances could be further stretched by a critical illness; as you would have to factor your own living costs as well as any dependants, as well as potential alterations to accommodation for disability or extended periods of care.

If I fall ill with Coronavirus, can I claim?

Unfortunately, your critical illness cover is not likely to pay out should you contract Covid-19. Coronavirus is a viral infection so will not be listed on your policy as a critical illness. However, should you face heart failure for example whilst ill with Coronavirus, you should be able to make a claim.
