Case studies

Although you probably know most of your staff well, every one of them will have a unique medical history. That's why we think it's important to treat every claim on an individual basis. Not surprisingly, then, there isn't a 'one size fits all' case study that would demonstrate how Group Critical Illness works. But this made-up example may help to show you the benefits of Group Critical Illness:

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. She's decided not to return to work for a couple of years. As the wage-earner, her 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.

He mentions these concerns in a staff meeting. The company secretary reminds him that the company has a Group Critical Illness in place, which gives him extensive cover. So, if he suffers from from an illness covered by the policy, his wife and new family would not be without financial support.

If this was one of your 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
