Critical Illness Insurance

What is Critical Illness Insurance?

Critical illness cover pays out when you fall ill with a listed condition. So if you take out a 25-year policy with a sum insured of $200,000 only to develop cancer soon after, you would be able to claim the money. In effect, this type of policy offers a financial lifeline in times of family crisis.

You can spend the money however you wish. You could use it to clear debts, pay medical costs or bills, or adapt your home to your particular needs.

Which illnesses or conditions are covered?

The list of conditions varies between providers. Critical Illness Insurance often covers diseases such as:

Cancer, a Heart Attack or Heart Failure, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Deafness, Kidney or Liver Failure and many more.

Give yourself the best chance to recover from these major traumatic events and minimise the financial disruption to you and your family.

Do I need Critical Illness Insurance?

The need for critical illness insurance has increased in line with life expectancy. The longer we live, the more likely we are to battle illness, and this means incurring increased expenses that can seriously deplete your personal savings quickly.

If you answer ‘no’ to any of the following questions, you should consider arranging a protection plan that can help if your circumstances should change.

  • Would your employer support you financially if you were being treated for a serious illness?

  • Would your loved ones be able to financially maintain their lifestyle if you were unable to work?

  • Could you cover your monthly outgoings such as rent, a mortgage or car payments if you became seriously ill and unable to earn a living?

  • Would your children be able to fully complete their education if you we unable to help fund it?

  • You can opt to include Term Life Insurance, so that you’ll receive a pay-out if you were to pass away during the term of the policy.

What about Whole Life Insurance?

Whole Life Insurance offers coverage for the full lifetime of the insured. Premiums go toward both maintaining the policy’s death benefit and allowing the policy to build a cash value at a guaranteed rate.

The policy owner can borrow funds against that cash value or, in some instances, withdraw cash from it outright to help meet needs such as paying for a child’s college education or covering medical expenses.

IAE INSURE can help you choose the level of cover suited for your personal circumstances and needs.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

When's the best time to get covered?

The earlier you take out a Critical Illness Insurance policy the cheaper the policy is likely to be. This means it’s more efficient in the long run and it means that as soon as you get married or have any dependants they’re immediately protected.

You can make your critical illness insurance cheaper by combining it with or buying it alongside normal life insurance. Some insurers do not even sell standalone critical illness cover. It is worth noting that there is normally only one pay-out, so if you make a claim for a critical illness, your family would not receive a further pay-out on death.

Most premiums are fixed, but some companies offer what are known as reviewable premiums – which have lower starting premiums that could rise during the policy term.

IAE Insure can quote you for both types of cover.

Most policies pay out only once, but some policies allow for a small payment if you are diagnosed with a less severe illness.

Your policy would then continue and, in theory, you could make a further claim down the line should you be diagnosed with a critical, more serious condition or illness.

Everyone situation is unique, and as such every policy is underwritten for that individual and their circumstances. While personal and family health history is one of many key price indicators (along with current health, age and smoking habits), it doesn’t in any way prevent you from receiving quotes. Our experts have helped many happy applicants with pre-existing conditions and health challenges and have enabled them to obtain Critical Illness and Life Insurance that suits them.
