A serious illness isn’t something most people plan for. In fact, it may not even cross their minds—until it happens.

With our group critical illness insurance plans and services, you can offer your plan members financial support during a difficult time.

What we offer

Group critical illness insurance

You can include Group Critical Illness Insurance to plan members and their dependants in your base benefits plan and offer an option to purchase additional coverage for themselves and their spouse.

When a critical illness claim is approved, a lump sum benefit is paid. Coverage can be structured as either a flat amount or a multiple of the plan member’s salary.

The standard plan covers the following common major illnesses:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Cancer*

*Exclusions for certain non-life-threatening forms of cancer apply.
