When illness strikes, you can strike back. If you experience a serious health condition in the future, critical illness coverage can help lighten the load.
Even with medical insurance, a serious health condition could cost you. Critical illness insurance can provide you with extra cash when you need it most—if you or a family member once covered under this plan is treated for a major medical event (such as a heart attack or stroke) or diagnosed with a critical illness (such as cancer or end-stage renal disease).

Your and Your Family’s Needs
Does a serious health condition run in your family? Would you need financial help to offset the cost of a serious health situation? If you answered “yes” to either question, having critical illness insurance could give you peace of mind.
