Group Critical Illness

Support your employees when they’re unwell

We’ll make a tax-free payment to your employee if they’re diagnosed with one of the defined illnesses, have undergone one of the surgical procedures, or circumstances mean that the definition of an insured illness covered by the policy is met. With our cover, your employees can focus on getting better without worrying about their household or medical bills.
