Group Critical Illness
Please note: This information refers to Group Protection policies quoted after 28 September 2015.
Group Critical Illness cover provides a lump sum benefit if one of your employees is diagnosed with a critical illness or undergoes one of the listed operations (that meets our policy definition) and survives for at least 14 days. We only cover the critical illnesses we define in our policy and no others.
By providing a Group Critical Illness benefit to your workforce, it helps to demonstrate that you care about your employees and their welfare – the last thing anyone wants when they are ill is additional financial worries. Group Critical Illness cover gives employees a lump sum to spend on anything they need; paying bills, making alterations to their home (as a result of their illness) or to help with their recovery.
Group Critical Illness can also be offered as a flexible benefit to your employees.
