What is critical illness insurance?

This is a type insurance that provides coverage for life insurance companies. It pays out a lump sum tax-free if the insured is diagnosed with a serious illness or has to be hospitalized. These critical illness coverages are available as either an add-on (a crucial illness rider), to a life insurance policy or as a standalone policy. Critical illness insurance provides financial support to the insured and their families as they deal with the financial and medical consequences of a life-threatening disease. This is in contrast to traditional life insurance. The policy stipulates that the critical illness benefit will only be paid to an insured who is diagnosed with a covered disease. The insured can use the proceeds of the insurance at his/her discretion (or that of the parent/guardian if a child’s critical illness policy applies).

What is Children’s Critical Illness Insurance?
