What’s the difference between Terminal Illness Cover and Critical Illness Cover?
Terminal Illness Cover is a feature of life insurance that allows for the early payout of Life Insurance – so the ‘Death Benefit’ – as it’s called – is paid out when the policyholder is diagnosed with less than 12 months to live – rather than after they die. (The early payout that Terminal Illness Cover provides may assist policyholders in putting their affairs in order).
Critical Illness Cover is a different type of cover that pays the policyholder if they’re diagnosed with one the illnesses listed in the policy. There are usually up to fifty illnesses specified in a policy and although they’re not necessarily fatal – for example heart attack, blindness or cancer – each would have a significant – critical – impact on the policyholder’s life. A Critical Illness benefit might allow policyholders to buy treatment, pay off a mortgage or make home modifications, for example.
Can I amend my cover?
Any time you like. There are very few penalties for changing cover, and generally all you need to do is cancel a direct debit and start a new application. Be careful, though, because many policies get more expensive the older you are and changes in your health could affect the cover available. We’ll be able to advise the best options for you.
