Critical Illness Insurance for Women


When it comes to the chances of becoming ill, there is no qualitative difference between men and women. The main benefits of taking out a critical illness are:

  • You can insure that any major loss of income that comes with your illness brings about through inability to work
  • You can insure that you are still able to honour mortgage payments
  • Being able to insure that you can undergo the appropriate level of treatment

  • What exclusions are contained within each policy? Most will exclude those illnesses caused by self inflicted wounds, drug abuse or dangerous hobbies like mountaineering.
  • The amount of cover will differ, as well the premium calculations based on the severity, length and treatment required.
  • Is the critical illness insurance offered as an individual policy or as part of a life insurance or medical illness policy?
