Critical Illness Cover

A critical illness can strike at any time:-

  • Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer *
  • More than 1 in 3 people in the UK will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime *
  • Every year over 110,000 people in the UK have a stroke **
  • There are around 82,000 heart attacks in the UK each year, one every 5 minutes ***
  • There are an estimated 100,000 people living with Multiple Sclerosis in the Unitied Kingdom and it is three times as common in women than men **** 

The above conditions are only a few of the critical illnesses that are covered under a critical illness policy and many cover in excess of 25 ailments ranging from third degree burns to heart bypasses, deafness, brain tumours, disability, losing limbs and blindness to name a few.

These policies rise in price each year as the number of people suffering critical illnesses increases annually.  As medical science improves the things that once killed us can now often be treated but if they happen, we are often not the same person we were before and cannot lead the same life. A critical illness policy will pay out and ensure that if you can no longer work or earn like you used to, at least your mortgage will be paid off and your home safe.
