What Is Specified Illness Cover

Specified illness cover is sometimes referred to as critical illness cover or serious illness cover but they all refer to the same thing.

Specified illness cover is a form of insurance that pays out a tax-free lump sum if you’re diagnosed with a serious illness during the term of the policy. Specified illness cover can be purchased as standalone cover or combined with life cover or mortgage protection under the one policy.
