The aim of personal protection is to provide money for people who financially depend on you. We need to consider the impact and consequences that your death or you suffering ill health would have on the people most close to us.
Critical Illness Cover
For many the financial risks of a critical illness or injury are more important (and likely) than death, as it may lead to loss of work, treatment and additional care costs. A critical illness policy will make a lump sum payment or provide a regular income (see below under Family Income Benefit) on diagnosis of defined “critical” illnesses, serious conditions or injuries. The covered conditions, and level of payment, vary greatly from policy to policy so it is vital to read the terms and conditions of each rather than simply choosing the cheapest.
