10 Mar Critical Illness Insurance
Critical Illness Insurance provides a lump sum payment if you’re diagnosed with a serious illness like cancer or suffer a major health event, like heart attack or stroke.
You can use a Critical Illness payment however you wish: for medical services and treatments, for support or ongoing care at home, or to cover living costs and household expenses so you can focus on your health.
