Zurich Term Life Insurance provides a cost-effective worldwide protection for individuals and businesses in UAE.  

It is designed to pay an agreed cash lump-sum if you die during the fixed term of the policy.

In addition to the life cover, Zurich Term Life Insurance also provides the following optional benefits;

Critical illness benefit

Critical illness benefit pays an agreed cash lump sum if you are diagnosed with one of the illnesses or disabilities defined in your policy.

This benefit is subject to a waiting period of 90 days from the start of the policy, which means that you can claim for a critical illness benefit in the first 90 days from the start date of the plan.

Critical illness claims are paid as an advance payment of the life cover amount.

This means that when a critical illness claim is paid, the life cover amount is reduced by the amount of the critical illness claim. If the claim is equal to the life cover amount, then the policy ceases to exist.

Your premiums for critical illness benefit will be reviewed every five years and may increase each time. However, there has never been an increase in premiums in the past.
