Explained: What is Critical Illness Insurance & What Does it Cover?

Jun 13, 2019

If you were diagnosed with a serious illness, knowing that you have a financial cushion if you are unable to work can offer real peace of mind during a difficult time.

That is what critical illness insurance cover is there to do. If you are diagnosed with a condition defined in your policy, then a critical illness insurance policy will pay out a lump sum amount (specified by you when you took out the policy) that you can use however you want.
