Critical Illness Cover could be a great way to provide for your family if you become critically ill

If you became seriously ill and lost your job, how many months could you survive financially? According to research, OVER HALF of GCC residents wouldn’t survive longer than 3 months…

Statistically we are more likely to be diagnosed with a critical illness than die during our working lives, and with advancements in medicine, suffering a critical illness such as a heart attack, stroke or cancer may not necessarily be a life-ending illness. Consequently, with survival rates improving we are now posed with additional challenges when it comes to financial planning – how will I cope if I survive a critical illness?

A life-changing illness can significantly impact the ability to work – reducing or stopping your ability to earn money.

What does this mean for me?

A recent survey conducted by Friends Provident International to over 1,000 GCC residents discovered some worrying information; if they were affected by a critical illness and therefore couldn’t work, 57% said that they would not survive financially for more than 3 months. Even more worrying, 26% of those surveyed would not last a full month…

They specialise in working with you to find suitable products that mean that your family are protected from financial instability should an emergency arise.

What is critical illness cover and why should I have it?

Critical illness cover pays a lump sum to you and your loved ones in the event that you are diagnosed with one or more critical illnesses. It’s a fixed amount and there is no link to the cost of medical expenses or any treatments you need – this means that you could use critical illness insurance in place of something like medical insurance, because as the lump sum is paid to you directly, it can be used for anything you need – bills, food, medical expenses or treatment, etc.

What does the research show?

From studies conducted by Friends Provident International and Zurich, we have learned that:

Under half the population of the GCC have life insurance

If they were to pass away, their families would not receieve any financial help

Less than 1/4 has protection against critical illness

This leaves them vulnerable to financial instability if they could not work

The average age for critical illness claims is 47

This is often a lot younger than many people expect

Heart attack and cancer are the highest health risks

Of crticial illness claims from 2018 to 2020, 36% were heart attacks and 49% cancer
