Critical Illness Cover Explained

What would happen to you and your dependents if you are no longer able to work following the diagnosis of an illness or a life-changing medical procedure?

A critical illness policy, like other types of life cover, provides a lump sum payment in return for paying regular premiums over the life of the cover.

The size of the payout is at the outset of the policy, where Insurance Hero will run through a fact-finding questionnaire to get an understanding of your specific requirements should you be no longer able to work.

To provide accurate information to our specialist underwriters, we will ascertain:

  • Your monthly financial needs
  • Your general personal health
  • Financial liabilities
  • The needs of your dependents
  • The nature of the job you do
  • Participation in higher-risk pursuits including motorsports

Based on this information, we will work with you to come up with a lump sum requirement and policy duration and let the underwriter come back with a corresponding premium.

Not all illnesses or medical procedures have critical illness cover and are in the policy.

An example of diseases generally covered includes but is not limited to, the following:

  • Progressive supranuclear palsy
  • Heart attack
  • Benign spinal cord tumour
  • Pulmonary artery surgery
  • Structural heart surgery
  • Liver failure
  • Stroke
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Heart valve replacement or repair
  • Multiple system atrophy
  • Systematic lupus erythematosus
  • Traumatic brain surgery
  • Coronary artery by-pass grafts
  • Liver failure
  • Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease
  • Aorta graft surgery
  • Alzheimer’s disease or pre-senile dementia
  • Loss of Speech permanently
  • Loss of hand or foot
  • Devic’s disease

A typical policy will pay out if you survive for ten days after diagnosis of a qualifying critical illness which will provide peace of mind for your family.

About Motorsport Income Protection Cover

As with other types of associated life insurance cover, income protection works to provide you with a regular salary, should you be unable to work while you recover from an illness or accident.

It may happen that as an amateur or professional motorsport participant, you have a crash that keeps you from going back to your day job. If your employment contract does not pay you if you are not working or only for an initial period, then income protection cover can fill this gap.

Typically, after a claim, income protection will come into effect after a pre-agreed period from one month up to one year. At the start of the policy, the size of the required premium to meet your salary is required. The duration of the plan is also decided and could be up to retirement age.

Consider income protection if you have financial commitments, including some of the following:

  • An outstanding mortgage
  • Equity release
  • Personal loans
  • Credit card debt
  • Car loan
  • Hire purchase agreements
  • Bank overdrafts
