Find out why your clients might need Critical Illness Cover

Product features Investor benefits
Life cover. Financial support and peace of mind that your client’s loved ones could survive financially.
Critical illness cover (CIC). Pays out if your client is diagnosed with one of our defined critical illnesses. So they can concentrate on recovering, rather than worrying about their finances.
Life or earlier (CIC). Pays out on death or if your client is diagnosed with one of our defined Critical Illnesses - whichever happens first. Offering financial protection for both scenarios.
Terminal illness benefit. Pays if diagnosed with a Terminal Illness. Included at no extra cost, for Life Cover policies with terms of 3 or more years and all Life or Earlier CIC policies. Your client can spend quality time with their family, with the help of financial support.
Total and permanent disability benefit (TPD).

An optional addition to Life Cover, paying out if your client is diagnosed with a TPD. They would receive financial support, if they are totally and permanently disabled.
Guaranteed premiums. Premiums will remain the same for Life Cover and Life Cover with TPD. CIC premiums are guaranteed for the first 5 years. Meaning your client can budget effectively as their life cover premiums will never increase.
Multi-currency. Premiums and cover available in USD, GBP and EUR. Your client can choose a currency which suits and this will remain throughout the plan.
Single and joint life. Single or joint life basis available. Offering financial security that your client’s spouse is covered, should they choose joint life.
Cover available for any term. Cover is available for any number of years, providing your client is under age 80 at the end or age 70 for Critical Illness Cover.
Monthly or annual premiums. Premiums can be paid either monthly or annually. Your client can decide which frequency better suits them.
Level or decreasing term. Both types of cover offer a lump sum payment on death. Decreasing Term provides a lump-sum at the time of claim that aims to sufficiently cover the outstanding liability on a repayment loan – ideal protection against a mortgage. You can choose cover to suit your client’s individual circumstances.
Portability. It's portable, which means your client can take it with them if they ever decide to move.
