Group Critical Illness

How does this policy work?

Group Critical Illness cover is designed to make a payment if you are diagnosed with a critical illness (that meets our policy definition). From the start we’ll do everything we can to help you put your Group Critical Illness policy into place, because we understand how important it is to keep overheads down, we aim to deliver:

  • Efficiency. To minimise disruption to your business we’ll aim to set up your Group Critical Illness policy as quickly as possible, subject to exclusions on pre-existing conditions. This means there will be no medical underwriting requirements for the majority of your employees.
  • Affordability. Keeping costs down is also a priority to any business, you can choose whether to take out an extended policy which covers more conditions or opt for standard cover to help contain costs.
  • Flexibility. Not every business wants the same level of cover so we’ve designed Group Critical Illness that you can flex to meet your needs. For example, you can choose whether or not you would like to include your employees’ married partners or civil partners under the policy. Children also receive cover for up to 25% of the employee's benefit (up to a maximum of £20,000 gross).

Low costs, minimum administration and excellent efficiency

Costs, administration and efficiency are important to every business, so we’ll match our service and policy to suit you most. We prefer information about your employees to be provided in electronic format, which not only helps us, but also helps you as time passes because renewals and changes to member information can then be collated easily, with minimum disruption to your business.

Helping you help your employees

Group Critical Illness pays out a lump sum if you are diagnosed with a critical illness that meets our policy definition. We cover critical illnesses that are defined within our policy and no others. We’ll pay eligible claims promptly, which means that your employees can rely on us for financial support if they suffer from a pre-defined illness or condition. We’ll also do all we can to help them, their family, and their colleagues at a difficult time.
