Serious illness vs. Critical illness

See how our cover compares to other providers

Our serious illness cover is positively different

Unlike typical critical illness cover, our award-winning Serious Illness Cover pays out on a severity based approach. This means that our cover better reflects the impact an illness has on your client’s lifestyle, and they’d still be protected if a payout was less than 100%. In fact, because our cover is so different, comparing against other providers isn’t always easy. That’s why we’ve created our Serious Illness vs. Critical Illness comparison tool.

Don’t just take our word for it, Defaqto have verified the information to make sure that it is fair, transparent and representative.

Please note: This tool works better on a larger screen.
