Serious Illness cover pays out a tax-free lump sum upon diagnosis of a serious illness and/or condition covered under the terms of the policy.
It’s designed to remove the financial pressure that typically follows a major health setback – long absences from work may make it very difficult to continue to pay the household bills whilst you focus on recovering.
You decide the level of cover you require (typically, this is a multiple of x1 or x2 your annual salary).
However, you can select whatever amount you feel is appropriate.
The Life Company will assess your application based against your underlying health conditions and your age.
This determines the monthly premiums you will be charged. Once you accept the cost (and any special Terms that may be applied to the policy) your policy documents are issued and you are “on cover”.
It varies dependant on the exact Terms you request.
The monthly premiums are fixed for each month and payable by Direct Debit.
You can select to have the monthly premiums increased on the anniversary date of the policy each year to increase the level of benefits in order to keep pace with the effect of inflation.
