most common faqs

Will I need to undergo a medical examination for life and critical illness insurance?

This is not always the case. Subject to your age, amount of cover and general health, the insurers may require further evidence before they can offer terms. This can be completed by either an additional telephone interview, nurse visit or a targeted report from your GP.

What factors will affect the kind of life and critical illness insurance policy I can qualify for?

Insurers will look at a number of factors before offering cover. Every provider is different, which is why it is best to speak with one of our advisers who can choose the best insurer for your circumstances. Some of the main factors will be age, occupation type, general health, smoker status and dangerous hobbies or pastimes. Once terms have been offered by the insurer and a monthly premium is agreed, that is the price you will pay each month for the life of the policy, should you choose a guaranteed premium.

What constitutes critical illness?

A critical illness is not necessarily a life threatening condition, but in most cases life changing. Each insurer has a list of different definitions, meaning some will cover certain conditions, whilst others may not. Speak to one of our advisers to find out which critical illness plan is best suited for you.
