Critical Illness Recovery Plan

Home Insurance

Financial support if you're diagnosed with a critical illness

What is Critical Illness Insurance?

The Critical Illness Recovery Plan can help bridge the often overlooked gap in insurance protection and help pay benefits for lifestyle changes and recovery expenses in the event of a covered critical illness. The right insurance coverage can make the difference between struggling with expenses and putting your life together in the best way.

How does Critical Illness Insurance help?

After surviving from a critical illness like Cancer (Life-Threatening), Acute Heart Attack or Stroke2, many individuals face the challenges of having less income — or none at all — if they can no longer resume their line of work. They may also need to re-engineer their home or vehicle, travel abroad for medical treatments, pay for long-term nursing care or motorized wheelchair, among other things. In situations like these, the Critical Illness Recovery Plan could help pay the costs associated with such life-altering illnesses.

What if I already have Life Insurance?

Life insurance is important, but it doesn’t provide benefits if you survive a critical illness. Critical Illness Insurance can pay you a lump-sum benefit upon diagnosis of a covered critical illness.
