Critical Illness Insurance helps to protect loss of income; due to a major illness like Cancer, Heart Attack, Stroke, Kidney Failure...
Unlike medical insurance, Critical illness insurance pays a cash lump sum on diagnosis of an illness covered by your policy. You may use this cash lump sum at your discretion.
Typically people use the critical illness claim proceeds to pay for the following;
- Living expenses until the insured is fully recovered and can get back to work
- Children's Higher Education
- Children's Marriage
- Paying off a Mortgage
- Early Retirement for Self and or Spouse
- Immigrating to another/back to home country
Moreover, medical insurance covers only until the person is employed with the organisation. In the event of a job-loss, the visa and the medical card are cancelled.
Critical illness insurance can be very useful in such situations.
