With a critical illness, you want to be sure that the cover you choose will be there for when you need it the most.

Here're some of the most common conditions our customers claimed on last year.

  • Cancer

1 in 2 people born after 1960 are expected to get cancer in their lifetime (Cancer Research UK). In fact, 60% of all our critical illness claims in 2020 were due to cancer.

  • Heart

Heart and circulatory disease cause more than a quarter (27%) of all deaths in the UK; that's nearly 170,000 deaths each year - an average of 460 people each day or one death every three minutes.

  • Stroke

Strokes cause around 34,000 deaths in the UK each year (BHF). Strokes are a major health problem and are the single largest cause of disability for the UK.
