What is Critical Illness Insurance?
In the event that you are diagnosed with a critical illness, medical bills, mortgages, utilities, groceries and other expenses can pile up quickly. What’s more, those suffering from a critical illness may not be able to work at all, making it all the more difficult to make monthly payments and remain financially secure. That’s where critical illness insurance can help.
