Financial benefits that could prove to be a lifesaver

You can never be fully prepared for a major illness. But with critical illness insurance, you can be financially prepared.

Critical Illness Insurance

Lump sum payment provides support when your family needs it most

Emotionally managing illnesses like cancer, a heart attack or stroke is hard enough. Financially managing the costs on top of this is often overwhelming. Critical illness insurance provides a lump sum payment to ensure you and your family have financial support in a difficult time. So, you’ll be able to spend less time worrying about money and more time focusing on healing.

  • You’ll receive a lump sum payment to use as you see fit
  • Use it for prescriptions, deductibles, co-payments, experiential/non-traditional treatments and even non-medical expenses like everyday bills
  • Pays out in addition to what your medical insurance covers
  • Payments may be paid directly to you, not to the doctors, hospitals or healthcare providers
