Many of us will know someone who has died too young, and if you’ve seen a family trying to deal with these things, you will know that the financial impact can be devastating. Life Assurance can’t stop the unthinkable happening but it can make dealing with the consequences a little easier. Life Assurance is designed to pay out if you die during the term of the plan. Its main use is to pay off your mortgage, but what about credit cards, loans, utility bills, childcare, food and clothes, not to mention transport, education, or any luxuries? Cover can be taken as a Lump Sum or Income or a combination of both.
If the worst should happen, nothing will replace mum or dad in the eyes of the child but real financial support, when everything else is sad and scary, will make an enormous difference, maintaining some sort of normality in a topsy turvy world. For the mum or dad left to hold it all together, it’ll ensure that huge emotional stress isn’t accompanied by the trauma of financial strain.
None of us can afford to be complacent and take the view that it "won't happen to me" because the statistics show there's a chance it will.
The majority of people who suffer from a Critical Illness have a considerable period of time of work. Some people who suffer a Critical Illness are unable to return to work. Of of those who do return to work, they can’t always work the same hours as before, so they could well experience a long term drop in income. Living costs tend in increase during a time of illness, with travel costs to and from hospital appointments, increased heating costs, carer costs, and potentially alterations to the home. Critical Illness cover provides a lump sum, often intended to pay off the mortgage, and to help deal with these unexpected expenses.
It would be nice to know there was a financial cushion to fall back on, if this happened. It would mean you could concentrate on getting better, rather than worrying about money. This is where Critical Illness Cover can really help. It is intended to pay out when you are diagnosed with a specified Critical Illness or suffer a total permanent disability, rather than if you die. Even a little bit is better than none at all. It would give you some peace of mind if the worst happened.
