Critical Illness Protection

If you’re diagnosed with a serious illness like cancer, a heart attack or organ failure during the term of your policy, we’ll pay out a lump sum amount to you. This helps you to cover your living expenses so you can focus on your treatment and recovery.

Unfortunately, we can’t cover all circumstances, including:

Not paying your premiums
If your payments stop, so does your cover.

Illness outside the policy term
You choose how long your cover lasts. Once the term ends, your cover will stop which means we won’t pay if you're diagnosed with a serious illness.

Claims that don't qualify
Claims that meet the conditions and definitions included in the Policy Terms and Conditions will be paid. We apply discretion to pay claims in as many circumstances as possible however conditions that are specifically excluded in our product literature will not be paid.

If you aren’t completely honest with us
As part of your application, we’ll ask you about your health and lifestyle. Your answers determine how much your plan will cost. If you're dishonest, we might not be able to pay your claim.
