What is serious illness cover?
If you’re diagnosed with a serious illness we cover, serious illness cover pays out a lump sum. The payout is tax-free and can cover your expenses while you take time to recover..
How does serious illness cover work?
For the duration of your plan, you’ll pay monthly premiums. If you’re diagnosed with one of the conditions we cover, you’ll get a payout.
Our cover pays out based on the impact that the condition has on your lifestyle. This means you could receive a payout at an earlier stage of your illness, even if it’s not life threatening. We’ll pay out 100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, 15%, 10% or 5% of your cover depending on the severity of your condition.
Should your condition get worse, or you suffer with another condition, you can claim again. You can keep doing this until you’ve used up your whole cover amount.
