It's hard to imagine the emotional impact of your child becoming critically ill.

The family is suddenly faced with several worrying concerns – one of which could be added financial pressures.

Children’s Critical Illness Cover can help make it easier to cope financially at a time when you need to focus on caring for your child.

Why you might need to consider Critical Illness Cover for your child

If your child becomes ill with a critical condition, the cost of looking after them could increase. Additional costs may include specialist hospital treatment, medical equipment for your home and car – or even paying for a carer.

Parents often have to take time off work – or even leave their job – to spend time caring for their child, and this could result in a significant drop in family income.

Did you know you can now get Enhanced Children’s Critical Illness Insurance?

In addition to the critical conditions listed in many insurers’ policies, we can now source cover for your children up to the age of 21, including 12 child-specific conditions, terminal illness and pregnancy complications. Ask us for more information.

Perception vs. Reality…
Some people think that insurers don't usually pay out for Life Insurance, Critical Illness Cover and Income Protection claims.

However, in 2019, a record high of 98.3% of Life Insurance claims made were paid, including 97.4% of term Life Insurance claims, 91.6% of Critical Illness Cover claims and 99.9% of Whole of Life claims.
