Case studies

Every one of your employees has a unique medical history and we take pride in treating every claim on an individual basis. Not surprisingly, then, there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ case study that would demonstrate Group Critical Illness in action. But this made-up example may help to illustrate the many benefits Group Critical Illness could provide for your employees:

Your employee, your mutual benefits…

A young couple in their mid-30s are buying a new house. The husband works full-time, but his wife recently gave birth to their first child and has decided not to return to work for two years. As the sole breadwinner, the husband is concerned about what would happen if he were unable to work.

He's healthy now, and hasn’t suffered any illness in the past, but a couple of relatively young close friends have recently been diagnosed with serious illnesses – bowel cancer and leukaemia.

At his review, he mentions these concerns to his manager and explains that worrying about his family may be affecting his concentration. His manager reminds him that the company has a Group Critical Illness in place, which gives him extensive cover. So, if he suffers from an illness covered by this policy, his wife and new family would not be without financial support.

If this example was one of your actual employees, and you had Group Critical Illness in place, then you’d be helping him by:

  • Giving reassurance to him and his family
  • Alleviating concerns that could be affecting his productivity
  • Building your profile, highlighting your commitment to care for employees
