Life Insurance with Critical Illness

What does life insurance cover?

Answer

Our Life Insurance pays out on death of the people insured, or earlier if there's a diagnosis of terminal illness. The terminal illness must meet our policy definition and you can't claim within the last 12 months of the plan. For our LV=Life Insurance this payment will be 3% less than the original insured amount, although this does not apply to our other 'protection policies.'.

Depending how the policy is set up, it could cover a single person or joint.

We also offer a Life and Critical Illness policy covering 63 listed conditions.
