As with all insurance policies, conditions and exclusions will apply.
Life insurance, also known as life cover or life assurance is a way to help protect your loved ones financially if you were to die during the length of your policy.
Please remember that life insurance is not a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made.
You choose the amount of cover you need and how long you need it for and you can pay your premiums monthly or annually. In return, your family has the reassurance of knowing that if you died while covered by the policy they could receive a cash sum pay out if a valid claim is made.
They could use this to help with household bills, child-care costs or covering mortgage payments.
Critical Illness can be added at an additional cost when taking out life insurance. It could pay out your chosen amount of cover if you're diagnosed with a specified illness during the length of your policy
Critical illness insurance will pay out if you get one of the specific medical conditions or injuries listed in the policy. But be aware that not all conditions are covered and policy will also state how serious the condition must be.
Every year 1m workers in the UK unexpectedly find themselves unable to work because of injury or illness, according to the Association of British Insurers.
Examples of critical illnesses that might be covered include:
Most policies will also consider permanent disabilities as a result of injury or illness. It only pays out once and then the policy ends. Some policies will make a smaller payment for less severe conditions, or if one of your children has one of the specified conditions.
