Sometimes even the healthiest people are diagnosed with illnesses they have little chance of preventing – like cancer. Critical Illness benefits are paid regardless of the life insured’s ability to work. The funds can be used for any purpose the Policy Owner chooses, whether for the reduction of debts, to seek specialist or alternative medical treatment, or make lifestyle changes (such as reducing working hours).
