Critical illness insurance is a form of health insurance protection that provides a lump sum benefit if you are diagnosed with a serious illness or condition covered by your insurance policy*.
Illnesses such as Cancer, Heart Attack or Stroke can have an impact on you, your family or your business on an emotional and financial level. Critical illness coverage by Empire Life provides a lump sum payment, tax-free, if you are diagnosed with a covered condition*.
