Critical Illness cover is designed to pay a lump sum on diagnosis of a critical illness such as cancer. It can be used to replace lost income, or to pay for medical fees/treatments. Critical illness cover allows you to focus on getting better without worrying about money.
Being diagnosed with a critical illness will most often come out of the blue - and will probably have a big impact on both your family and your finances.
By having critical illness insurance cover could provide financial protection if you're diagnosed with an illness covered by the policy. It could help you pay for any specialist medical bills and care you require while you're ill, and/or help you compensate for any loss of income that may result from you not being able to work.
During an already difficult time, critical illness cover could take a huge weight off your shoulders and make a real difference to your final time with your family.
What would happen if you became too ill to work? How would you survive financially?
Having income protection means that your income is replaced if you're unable to work due to long-term incapacity. Income protection supplements any employer arrangements, which will not usually continue over along period of absence. State benefits may be available but are very limited.
Mortgage Protection can help if you get into disarray with your mortgage repayments.
Mortgage Protection will provide a lump sum to repay any contractual liabilities including a mortgage. Usually the cover will only last for the outstanding mortgage or loan term. This is a relatively simple & cost effective protection plan.

As well as providing a safety net and peace of mind, it can also give you more choice as to where you’re seen and by whom; clean, modern hospitals; private rooms; and access to advanced cancer drugs that aren’t universally available through the NHS.
