At this most difficult and distressing time, your number one priority should be yourself. Focus on your recovery knowing you have the support of critical illness insurance.
What is Critical Illness Insurance?
Focus on Your Health
Critical illness insurance can be your pillar of strength and support system throughout this new normal. With a tax-free payment following your diagnosis, you can afford to step back and focus on what matters most: your health, recovery, and time spent with the ones you love.

Whether it’s for immediate needs like paying the bills, or saving up for your children’s future, you and your loved ones have the right resources.

What Critical Illness Insurance Covers
Your Support System, From Diagnosis to Healing
Critical illness insurance is more than a payout. From helping secure your financial future, to accessing support throughout recovery, cope with your new normal with relief and peace of mind. See how critical illness insurance helps you focus on your health, and protect you and your loved ones:
Lump-Sum, Tax-Free Benefit
Money should be the last thing on your mind. Critical illness insurance helps secure your finances against the impact of a serious illness. Because even with public healthcare, some treatments are not covered, while those that are still cost you in other ways, like when you’re unable to — and shouldn’t — work.
The lump sum benefit can help replace your income and maintain financial stability. Keep the lights on, reduce debt, bring in additional help or home-based healthcare, and even consider new medical treatments and medication not covered by government healthcare.
Access Better Healthcare
Connect with world-renowned health experts to get a second opinion, understand your condition, and explore new treatment options. Critical illness insurance empowers you to advocate for your care. Access resources you need to get the best care possible — and what you and your loved ones deserve.
Support for Life
With critical illness insurance, you can access essential support like counselling, child and home care, nutrition advice, and legal and financial consultations. Build your village of people who care most about your well-being and going with you on the road to recovery.
Return of Premium
Critical illness insurance is meant to protect you from the worst case scenario. If you don’t experience a serious illness within at least 10 years, you can get your investment back.
