How to protect against loss of income due to Critical Illness?

A major critical illness like Cancer, Heart attack, or Stroke can take a long time for recovery, mostly leading to prolonged loss of income.

During this period of diagnosis and recovery, usual living expenses continue, while additional medical expenses pile up.

Loss of income in this scenario can be devastating and can cause a lot of trauma for you and your family.
