How can Critical Illness Insurance help me?

Simply put, if you purchase a critical illness plan and get sick with a covered illness like cancer, heart attack or stroke, you will be paid a lump-sum cash benefit that can be used in any way you need it. And, your plan will pay even if you have other forms of insurance.

Because the bills don’t stop when you get sick, the benefits of a Critical Illness plan go far beyond just “money”. They can quite often mean the difference between overwhelming debt and financial stability.

How much Critical Illness Insurance do I need?

The amount of Critical Illness coverage you need will depend on your particular situation. Take a look at your monthly financial output and determine how much money you would need to survive until you or the wage earner could return to work.

A good rule of thumb is for a person, or family, to purchase enough Critical Illness insurance to cover one year of expenses, and possibly six to eight times annual earnings if there is a sizeable mortgage and young dependents involved.3
