Our recent work with Yorkshire Cancer Research has highlighted the reality of serious illness on families and individuals both emotionally and financially. With 1 in 2 people to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, it is a real risk alongside accidents and other illnesses which may affect your ability to provide an income.
There are various types of insurance cover. Critical Illness pays out a lump sum if you experience a serious illness listed in your policy such as cancer, but are likely to recover from this illness.
Terminal Illness Insurance usually pays a lump sum if you are not expected to live beyond 12 months following your diagnosis.
If you are diagnosed with an illness or suffer an injury, the road to recovery can be challenging. Unfortunately, mortgage or rental payments are still required, alongside other living costs which can add great strain on an already upsetting situation.
A lump-sum payment from a serious illness policy can help cover the costs of loss of income or adjustments required to your property. In many cases, care is also needed, which can have an impact on your partners’ ability to work or expense needed if external support is required.
Working with trufe. can help ensure you are paying the right amount on an appropriate level of cover for your circumstances.
Critical & Terminal Illness Cover is often combined with a life insurance policy that can be tailored to your requirements.
Providing security for your family if the worst happens is the primary incentive for couples and individuals to take out cover. This may pay half of the mortgage, or pay off the mortgage in full. The insurance amount could be set to provide for any dependents until they are at a certain age.
With many options all with pros and cons, it can be beneficial to speak to a broker to find the right insurance for your needs.
Most policies list certain illnesses or ailments that are covered with a payout that reflects the severity of the diagnosis. As a rule, the wider the spectrum of cover, the higher the monthly cost.
Your age, health, family history and lifestyle can all have an impact on the monthly payments you would need to make. At trufe. we go through the detail to establish the most appropriate insurance for your circumstances.
Less than a month ago I never thought it was possible but Sarah has made house buying for the first time as easy and as stress-free as possible. Always very professional and has gone above and beyond to make sure I fully understand what is happening at every stage.
Highly recommended. Sarah offers a friendly and efficient service. I have an extremely busy lifestyle, so had very little free time on my hands. Sarah made sure that she took care of everything while carefully considering my personal needs. I cannot recommend her services enough, she’s made buying my first home a doddle.
My mum gifted my partner and I her home and Trufe handled it. Sarah is so quick, thorough and professional she impressed all of us. Should I ever need a mortgage advisor in the future this is where I will go. Absolutely fabulous service and I heartily recommend them.
