Critical Illness cover is an insurance policy designed to provide you with financial security if you are diagnosed with a critical illness and are no longer able to work. The payout the policy could provide you with, in the event that you do become critically ill, could be invaluable – especially as a Contractor. Here we outline just how a Critical Illness payout could help you when you most need it:
If you have an illness or injury which makes it difficult for you to operate in the same way you used to, the Critical Illness payout you receive could help to pay for the adjustments needed to help you adapt. This could include building a ramp for a wheelchair, purchasing an adapted car or installing a stair lift.
If you suffer a serious illness or injury it might be the case that you are no longer able to work and earn. In this instance, a Critical Illness payout will give you peace of mind that you can continue to pay off debts like your mortgage.
With a Critical Illness payout, you can keep your savings just as they are.
If you don’t have a Private Healthcare plan in place, some of the specialist treatment or medication you need you might not be able to find on the NHS. With a Critical Illness payout, you can rest assured that you’re receiving the best treatment with an ability to afford private care.
These are just a few of the ways that you could benefit from a Critical Illness payout. When protecting yourself with a Critical Illness policy however it is important to consider how your individual circumstances and needs implicate the size of your policy and its particulars.
