Because your world can be turned upside down in an instant.
Illustration of neighborhood, Your Complimentary Guide to Critical Illness Insurance

Your complimentary guide makes it easy to find the critical illness insurance coverage you need.

With this guide, you’ll learn the ABC’s of critical illness insurance:

  • If you’re diagnosed with a covered illness, a cash benefit will be paid directly to you — not to doctors or hospitals. This means you’ll receive one lump-sum cash payment to use however you want.
  • You can use the funds to cover deductibles, copayments, medicine or therapy. You can even use the money to pay for everyday bills like childcare, rent, or your mortgage.
  • Obtain information on how to buy critical illness insurance directly.
  • With critical illness insurance, you and your family get the financial protection you need — even if you or a loved one is diagnosed with a serious illness.
