Group Critical Illness Insurance

Group Critical Illness Insurance

News of a critical illness can be very upsetting. When you can offer an employee financial support during a difficult time with Group Critical Illness Insurance, the employee and their family can better manage with extra financial resources.

Group Critical Illness Insurance allows the critically ill to focus on recovery rather than worry about finances.

Group Critical Illness coverage is available for employees and their dependants with the option to purchase additional coverage if desired.

Benefits can be structured as either a flat amount (i.e. $25,000 to $100,000) or a multiple of the employee’s salary.

Once a covered employee or dependant is diagnosed by a Physician and submits their claim, upon approval from the insurer, he/she will receive a cash lump sum, tax-free.

This money may be used however the person chooses such as: private nursing, medical care, modifications to a home, childcare or flying family to town - allowing the person to focus on their health.
