Critical Illness Insurance

A critical illness can impact your family at any time. It pays to be ready.  Critical Illness insurance can help you and your family prepare for the financial stress a critical illness can cause.

Payments can be used to cover related expenses, medical or otherwise, including:
• Hospital bills and other medical expenses
• Child care or house-sitting for the family pet
• Credit card payments and other household bills
• Travel to out-of-town hospital or treatment facility
• Deductibles, co-pays and non-medical expenses such as missed work and house-keeping

Understanding CriticalAssistance Advance

CriticalAssistance Advance is designed to come to the rescue of those budget conscious families by helping pay the costs associated with the initial occurrence of a heart attack, stroke, cancer or other serious illness as defined in the policy. You choose your benefit amount. Benefits are also available for your spouse and eligible children. If you elect dependent coverage, their benefit amount will be 50% of the benefit you elect.

Critical Illness Lump Sum Benefit

CriticalAssistance Advance pays you a lump sum benefit equal to the amount you choose multiplied by the applicable percentage shown in the Schedule of Benefits upon the first ever occurrence of a covered critical illness within each category. If the benefit payment is less than 100% of the selected benefit amount, the policy pays another lump sum benefit amount upon the diagnosis of a different type of critical illness within the same category up to the limit per category. There is a lifetime maximum of three times the benefit amount you choose.
