It is unfortunate but many of us will be diagnosed with an illness prior to death. It is also a concerning trend that many of us are being diagnosed younger. There are many different schools of thought on why this trend may be but the reality is we can only control those factors that are within our control. In this instance it means living a healthy life through regular exercise, a balanced diet and putting in place financial protection to protect ourselves and our family should we be confronted with this unwelcome reality.
Like life insurance – critical illness protection pays out a tax free lump sum should you be diagnosed with a list of defined critical illnesses. How you dispose of the tax free lump sum is up to you, but it is designed to help alleviate the financial burden during what is a very difficult time.
