Critical illness insurance
Cover your family can rely on
Life cover is there to look after your family if you die. Critical illness cover is an optional extra for life cover - and could help protect your family and finances if you suffer one of the critical illnesses covered by the plan. It is for UK residents aged 18-59.
It's designed to pay a guaranteed cash lump sum if you suffer from one of the specified illnesses - such as certain cancers, a heart attack or a stroke. The policy covers the critical illnesses defined in the policy, and no others.
