Critical Cancer Insurance

A cash benefit upon diagnosis, providing financial support when you need it most.

What is Cancer insurance?

Cancer health cover provides financial assistance during the most difficult of times. 

Our Cancer Insurance has three levels of cover, £12,500, £25,000 and £50,000, and is designed to pay out 20% of this as a tax-free cash lump sum on first diagnosis of cancer, with the remainder being paid should the diagnosis become terminal. Financial aid is there to help you with costs such as:

Our Cancer Insurance can be taken out by anyone over the age of 18 and under the age of 65 unless they have previously been diagnosed with cancer.

What is the difference between cancer insurance and critical illness cover?

Critical illness cover is for a broad array of serious conditions, whereas Cancer Insurance is targeted toward an increasingly common disease. Current statistics show that 1 in 2 people will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, so being prepared for the worst case can help to ease worries.

This is a very popular policy as premiums start at just £0.57 per week and children under the age of 22 can be included completely free of charge (subject to eligibility criteria).
