What is Critical Illness Insurance?

Financial support when you need it the most

While you can’t predict critical health conditions such as a heart attack, stroke or cancer, you can be better prepared.

Critical illness insurance can help you withstand the significant financial costs related to surviving a serious condition, so you can focus on your health instead of finances.

Why should you have it?

Protect your family, your lifestyle and your finances

A major health event can quickly throw most families into a financial crisis. While health insurance covers medical expenses, you may not be prepared for other financial setbacks after being diagnosed with a critical illness.
