For those who are unable to get the critical illness benefit due to pre existing conditions, they may apply for a Cancer Cover. it Provides a lump sum amount if the life insured is diagnosed with one of the cancers covered by the policy  conditions, or undergoes a medical procedure covered under the policy.

Like Critical Illness Benefits, Cancer claims are also paid as an advance of the life cover sum insured, so in the event of a claim the life cover sum insured will be appropriately reduced
