Specified Serious Illness Cover

Get cover when you need it most

Should you be diagnosed with one of the serious illnesses we cover, you can receive a lump sum that can cover essential bills and help lift the burden of finances during a difficult time. 

We provide quality definitions for the many serious illnesses we cover, which includes the most comprehensive cancer coverage in the market.

You will also be covered under our partial payment Specified Serious Illness Cover for an additional 33 specified illnesses - that’s 85 illnesses covered in total.
