What is Critical illness cover?
Critical illness cover is a form of insurance that helps protect the policyholder against the financial impacts caused by serious illnesses, listed within the plan. It’s not a nice situation to think about, but if the unfortunate were to happen, you would receive a one-off payment. This could be used to help make your mortgage repayments or rent, or provide general financial support for you and your family*.
*Critical illness insurance is only available with Zurich through the Level Protection and Decreasing Mortgage Cover plans. For more information take a look at the Key Features document.
How much life cover do I need?
The amount of life cover you need can depend on your personal circumstances and factors such as loans and mortgage repayments; so to help Zurich have created a tool for you to calculate the amount you might need.
