Frequently asked questions about critical illness cover

What is critical illness cover?

Critical illness cover is designed to pay out if you are diagnosed with certain life-threatening illnesses. Upon diagnosis, the policy would pay out a tax-free lump sum. It’s important to remember that most policies have a defined list of serious health conditions that they cover, with different policies covering different illnesses.
Speaking to a mortgage broker at the same time as securing your mortgage can help alleviate the stress of organising critical illness cover while putting your mind at ease that you’re protected.

Is it worth having critical illness cover?

It’s easy to live in the moment, especially with the excitement of buying a new home. When you’re in good health, it’s understandable to set aside those ‘what if’ questions and concerns. But imagine if your health was impacted by a life-threatening illness, such as cancer, a stroke or a heart attack… When sick pay has come to a halt, it can feel like there’s nowhere else to turn in order to pay your bills.
Plus, if you’re self-employed, your income might drop off immediately, especially as you undergo tests, treatment and recovery. Thankfully, this is where critical illness cover comes into play.
Much like how we purchase car insurance just in case, critical illness cover can pay out a lump sum to help you and your family financially, so you can rest assured your home and bills are paid and secure.

Is there a certain criteria for critical illness cover?

When you seek critical illness cover, you’ll typically be asked a number of questions in relation to your current health and that of your direct relatives. Some insurance companies may require you to get a medical exam before they issue the policy to you, but this isn’t always the case.
