This is the simplest and cheapest type of life insurance, and is known as term insurance because you choose how long you’re covered for, say, 10, 15, or 20 years etc (the term). Non-smokers receive discounted premiums. As a couple, you can also take out term cover in both your names, with the policy paying out if either of you die during the term. Premiums are usually fixed for the whole term.Critical Illness cover
This policy pays out a lump sum if you’re diagnosed with a critical illness, such as cancer, a stroke, MS, a major organ transplant, coronary artery bypass, heart attack and kidney failure. Each provider has a set list of critical illnesses that they pay out for. This can either be taken out as a stand alone policy or included with life assurance. Non-smokers receive discounted premiums. Pre-existing medical conditions are usually excluded or the cover is restricted. For a claim to be successful, you normally have to survive a month following the diagnosis. If you include life cover in the policy this clause will not apply. Premiums are either fixed for the whole term or the premiums are reviewed on a regular basis (usually every five years) and can go up. You can use the payout to pay for medical treatment, pay off your mortgage or for anything else.Life or Earlier Critical Illness Assurance
This policy pays out if you die or contract a critical illness covered under the policy. Each provider has a set list of critical illnesses that they pay out for. Non-smokers receive discounted premiums. Pre-existing medical conditions are usually excluded or the cover is restricted. Premiums are either fixed for the whole term or the premiums are reviewed on a regular basis (usually every five years) and can go up.
If you have an accident or suffer from a long term illness you may be unable to work. Many suffer financial hardship as a result and the state offers only minimal help. PHI (Permanent Health Insurance) may be the answer. PHI is also known as income replacement insurance, income protection insurance, long-term disability insurance, disability income insurance or personal disability insurance.
This type of policy replaces a pre-agreed part of your income if you are unable to work for an agreed period of time because of illness or disability. It continues to pay out until you can return to some kind of paid work, reach retirement, or the policy term ends, whichever is sooner.
PHI products have a waiting period before they will start to pay out (usually 4, 13, 26 or 52 weeks). The longer you agree you’ll wait, the lower your premiums, so it is important you find out what income you can get from your employer, or other insurance (such as mortgage payment protection). Premiums also depend on your gender, occupation, health and lifestyle. (Non-smokers receive discounted premiums). Premiums are either fixed for the whole term or the premiums are reviewed on a regular basis (usually every five years) and can go up.
Insurance companies have different definitions of what constitutes long-term illness. Usually to trigger the policy’s benefits you must demonstrate that you’re unable to follow your usual occupation as a result of sickness or accident. Some policies insist that you must be unable to work in any occupation before benefits are paid.
This cover might not be available to you if you have existing health problems, or a high risk occupation.
