Critical Illness Insurance

Can you and your family survive the financial aftershock of a critical illness?


The Quick Issue Critical Illness plan is designed to provide funds to help you financially care for yourself and your family and maintain the same quality of life after surviving a critical illness. The plan provides a tax-free lump sum living benefit to the owner of the plan on the occurrence of the first of the 14 covered illnesses, provided the insured survives the waiting period following the onset of the critical illness (30 days from diagnosis, except for the Loss of Speech (180 days) and Paralysis (90 days)). No living benefit is payable if cancer is diagnosed within 90 days of issue

10 Year Term Renewable to Age 75
Provides level insurance coverage with premiums that increase every 10 years as the plan is renewed. Coverage can be provided until age 75.

Level Term to Age 75
Provides level insurance coverage with premiums that remain level and never increase. Provides coverage to age 75.

Level Term to Age 75 with Flexible ROP (Return of Premium)
Provides level insurance with premiums that remain level and never increase. Provides coverage to age 75. Flexible Return of Premium (ROP) is an option that becomes available when you reach the later of age 65 or the 10th policy year with no critical illness benefit having been paid and the policy still in force. The Flexible ROP benefit gives you the option to surrender the policy and receive 50% of the annual premiums paid on the in force volume, with the percentage of return proportionately increasing to a 100% return of premium at age 75.
