Waiver of premium is available at an extra cost, so if you are off work due to incapacity caused by illness or injury, after 26 weeks you won't need to pay your monthly premiums. Life cover.
Critical illness cover can be added to your life insurance policy, at the outset, for an additional cost. This covers conditions that could affect your life and work:
Critical illness cover
If you were diagnosed with a critical illness and unable to work, how would you meet everyday living costs and pay the bills?
We never think it'll happen to us, but the reality is that critical illnesses like stroke, cancer or heart attack are more common than many people realise.
The good news is that advances in medical science and improved hospital care mean that more people are surviving these illnesses. This also means that more people may need financial help during their treatment, recovery, and in some cases helping them live with the illness. Critical illness cover is designed to help with the financial burdens people can face during this time.
Our Critical illness Cover, provided by Legal & General, can be added when you take out a life insurance policy for an additional cost. It covers conditions that could affect your life and work. For the full list of conditions covered see Legal & General’s guide to Critical illness Cover.
How does Critical illness Cover work?
As with all life insurance, you choose how long you would like to be covered for and how much you want the policy to pay out. You only pay one premium, but the policy could pay out in the event of your death, or diagnosis of one of the specified illnesses during the length of the policy.
Premiums start from £6 a month and are guaranteed to remain the same while the policy is in force – unless you make changes to your policy.
Cover for children is included at no extra cost and means that if your child is diagnosed with a critical illness and is eligible to claim, a cash sum will be paid that could allow you to take time off work or modify your home. This also applies if you take out critical illness cover now and have a child in later years. Terms and conditions apply, please read the Policy Summary document for more information.
Accident hospitalisation benefit – if you are admitted to hospital following injury caused by an accident and have to stay for 28 days or more, the policy will pay £5,000. Terms and conditions apply.
Terminal illness cover is included at no extra cost – this covers you if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness and given 12 months to live. The policy could pay out on diagnosis, allowing you to set your affairs in order. The minimum term for Terminal Illness Cover is 2 year. Please read the Policy Summary document for more information.
This is not a savings or investment product, and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made.
Not all forms of cancer are covered.
This varies based on your individual needs and circumstances, so be sure that your choice reflects it:
If you're covering a mortgage, think about how long your mortgage is.
If you're thinking about protecting your family, consider things like the age at which your children will leave home, or the length of time you'll be providing the most support for your family.
How much cover should I choose?
You can choose any amount, subject to a £6 minimum premium, as long as it meets your needs. You can take into account the value of your mortgage, your monthly bills and outgoings, or the cost of educating a child.
What does 'term' mean?
The term is how long you would like to be covered for in years, and you can specify the length of the policy based on your individual needs and circumstances.
If you die during the term, the policy could pay a cash sum. For more information about how long you can be covered for, please refer to the Policy Summary document.
What does 'sum assured' mean?
The 'sum assured', also known as the 'cash sum' or 'amount of cover', is the amount you want the policy to pay out if you die during the policy term.
What's the difference between Terminal illness cover and Critical illness cover?
Terminal illness cover is included with our policies at no extra cost. It covers you if you're diagnosed with a terminal illness and given 12 months to live. Minimum term is 2 years.
Once your diagnosed the policy could pay out, allowing you to set your affairs in order before your death.
Critical illness cover is available to add to our life insurance policies, at the outset, for an additional cost. It covers you for conditions that could affect your life and work, which tend to be conditions that you wouldn't necessarily die from, but that might cause long term suffering – for example multiple sclerosis or cancer.
Adding critical illness cover to a life insurance policy means that if you're diagnosed with one of the specified conditions and eligible to claim, the policy pays out – but please be aware that not all forms of cancer are covered.
