Critical Illness & Disability Insurance

Critical illness and disability insurance are two types of insurance designed to protect individuals from unexpected financial setbacks due to unforeseen health issues.

Critical illness insurance provides a lump-sum payment to cover medical expenses and lost income in the event of a serious illness diagnosis, while disability insurance provides ongoing income replacement in the event of a disability that prevents an individual from working.

As a financial advisor, it is important to understand the benefits of these types of insurance and help clients make informed decisions about their coverage options. By securing critical illness and disability insurance, clients can have peace of mind knowing that they are protected in the event of a health crisis.
