Critical Illness and Income protection

Critical illness insurance pays a lump sum on initial diagnosis of a qualifying critical illness. When you make a claim you are allowed to keep the policy pay-out even if you make a full recovery.

It can be built into another life insurance policy on a level term, decreasing term (mortgage life insurance) family income benefit (pays a monthly amount) or as a stand alone critical illness policy. Once you have made a critical illness claim it is normal that you policy will cease and other benefits will therefore cease.

Critical illness protection policies vary but nearly always include the following illnesses;

heart attack, cancer, a stroke, kidney failure, coronary bypass or transplant
