This type of policy covers serious illnesses detailed within a policy. Usually, this includes stroke, heart attack, certain types and stages of cancer, and more.
You will find some illnesses will not be covered, this will be detailed within your policy. Furthermore, if you have pre-existing health issues you knew you had before taking out the insurance, it’s unlikely they will be covered. In the policy, the specific illnesses covered and not covered will be stated.
If you fall victim to one of the several specified critical illnesses, the benefit gets paid and pays you whatever the long-term prognosis of that illness. Seeking specialist mortgage advice in Cambridge is key because the type of conditions covered vary from company to company, and this is why this type of insurance cannot be solely price-driven.
Usually, many businesses will offer Life and Critical Illness cover as a combined policy, and the order of pay-out would be dependent on which event happens first, either death or severe illness, the pay-out is made. They could also get written on a single or joint life basis.
Unlike Life and Critical Illness, where the cover pays out a lump sum, Income Protection pays out a monthly sum that acts as a replacement of your wages in the event of you being unfit to work. Furthermore, there are no limitations on the illnesses or injuries covered, except whether they make you unfit to work.
One restriction, however, is the amount you can cover and how quickly the benefit would start to get paid. The policies are underwritten on your health and lifestyle when you applied, just like Life and Critical Illness Cover. When it comes to Income protection, the policies are written on a single life basis.
A menu plan is when you combine your Life Insurance, Critical Insurance, and Income Protection. A discount is added by the providers each time you add a benefit which can make it cost-effective
Furthermore, a menu plan provides you with a range of cover and benefits that you can mix and match. This allows you to tailor a plan that is appropriate for your needs. Covering yourself and your family is something we strongly advise should the worst happen. Our mortgage advisors in Cambridge can help you with providing more information if you are unsure.
Family Income Benefit is the least common, but can often be useful. In particular, for households with young people. These plans can get taken to Life and/or Critical Illness Cover, and get underwritten in the same way.
Unlike the traditional forms of policy, rather than pay out a lump sum, the cover would pay an annual or monthly income for the remainder of the term of the plan. Therefore, it can replace the payment of the primary worker for several years, dependent upon a particular client’s situation and, because of this, would usually be written on a level or basis, or an index-linked basis designed to keep up with inflation.
You will find that many people have more than one different type of policy, and it wouldn’t be right to think of Mortgage Protection Insurance is something that is not needed because you are thinking the unexpected won’t happen.
