Medical advances have dramatically improved the survival rates of people who suffer critical illnesses and other injuries. Recovery may come with a significant financial cost that impacts both you and the people close to you. Life insurance is important, but it doesn’t provide benefits if you survive a critical illness. Critical illness insurance offers the financial help to pay the costs associated with life-altering illnesses. If you become sick with an illness covered by your policy and survive the waiting period, you’ll receive a lump-sum cash payment. And, unlike reimbursed health insurance benefits, you decide how to spend the money.
The right insurance coverage can make the difference between struggling with expenses and putting your life together in the best way. Our tax-free, lump sum cash benefit gives your finances time to recover so you can focus on recuperating and the cash benefit you receive can be used to help find the best medical treatments, replace lost income or cover expenses any way you choose.
