Critical Illness Insurance

What is Critical Illness Insurance all about?

If you are diagnosed with a serious illness or are not able to perform the tasks of daily living you are eligible to receive a tax-free lump sum of money. Unlike life insurance, you don't have to die to receive payment and you may use the money in any way you choose.

Critical illness Insurance provides a financial benefit designed to ease the stress caused by monetary concerns at a time when your life is endangered by a critical illness. It provides money when it is needed most. It allows the insured to focus on the physical and emotional task of getting well.

Under the program an insured can receive up to 2 Million dollars tax-free.

If the program is not used the insured can receive a refund of their premiums.

The program covers the following illnesses:

  • Alzheimer Disease
  • Loss of Independent Existence
  • Aortic surgery
  • Loss of Limbs
  • Aplastic Anemia
  • Loss of Speech
  • Bacterial Meningitis
  • Major Organ Transplant

Why you might consider it:

Critical access to cash when you need it most. Cash to pay costs related to illness that are not covered by group or government plans.
