Critical Illness cover that’s right for you

What is critical illness cover?

Critical illness cover or CIC is an insurance designed to support people through difficult periods of terminal or critical illness, these policies are standardly used as a way for people to financially support themselves and their loved ones. If you make a claim on the policy, you get a payment which can be used in any way whether it be meeting everyday expenses or alleviating the pressure by paying off financial burdens like mortgages.

Critical illness cover keeps your finances secure should you end up unable to work due to long-term illness or an accident.

Similar to life insurance and often included in the rate as standard, critical illness cover keeps you and your loved ones financially secure if you find yourself unable to work. This cover can also include a payout for those who may end up permanently paralysed as a result of a workplace accident or sickness.
