Our Life and Critical Illness options are part of the Flexible Protection Plan. They both pay a lump sum if the person insured dies or is diagnosed with a serious illness during the term of the policy. This provides financial, emotional and practical support when the unexpected happens.
We provide a range of options to best fit your client's protection needs:
Our Life and Critical Illness policies pay out a lump sum if your client (or the person insured) dies or is diagnosed with a critical illness. A list of the illnesses covered, the target market, limits, suitability and costs can be found in the product profile:
*20 of these conditions are covered under 1 additional payment definition – ‘Less advanced cancers’
We know it’s important for you to be able to tailor protection to your clients’ needs. With our Life and Critical Illness plans you have options to build a policy that’s right for your client. Including the type of cover, premium and children’s cover added to the policy.
We understand anyone can be affected by a life-changing condition. Our clear and fair approach to paying claims gives your client peace of mind, when it matters most.
We’re proud to have paid 96%* of all protection claims in 2021 – approving 93%** of critical illness claims and 98% of all life cover claims***. A successful claim is as important to your client as it is to you – your clients get vital financial help when they need it most and you feel confident in the provider you recommended.
*Includes claims already in payment in 2021 for Income Protection and Personal Sick Pay
** This is based on our Life and Enhanced Critical Illness cover only.
*** Our Life Insurance figures include claims paid for Life Insurance, Terminal illness and Whole of Life products (including some non-underwritten guaranteed whole of life products). Our whole of life products are no longer available.
