AVIVA Improves Life & Critical Illness Insurance Plans

AVIVA has upgraded its life and critical insurance plans with an extension on children’s cover.

For adult critical illness insurance cover, AVIVA has added cover for treatment of a brain abcess with a 100% payment, and for less severe third degree burns cover of up to £25,000. Brain abcess cover also applies to the children’s policy along with Diabetes mellitus Type 1 on which the insurer offers a £25,000 fixed payment.

The limit for child life cover has been extended from 18 to 22 years regardless whether they are in full time education or not.

Mark Cracknell, head of protection distribution at Aviva, said: “These critical illness enhancements add to our already comprehensive suite of protection products, and come at a time when we are running a number of initiatives and campaigns to provide advisers with tools and support to help them develop and grow their protection business.”

Alan Lakey, director at CIExpert, said Aviva had been at pains to regularly update its critical illness plans to retain its status.

He said: “Aviva has been offering top quality critical illness products since its absorption of Friends Life and these upgrades are valuable and serve to reinforce Aviva’s position as a market leader.”
