Nobody likes to think about getting seriously ill. “Life is for the living!” Hey, I couldn’t agree more. The problem is that “life” also tends to chuck us a few curveballs. And the curveballs sometimes come dressed up as nasty illnesses! Let’s be honest, everybody knows somebody who’s been diagnosed with a horrible dread disease. So right now I’ll give you 3 compelling reasons why you need critical illness cover.
And here they are in no particular order:
3. Heart Disease (and that includes heart attacks)
The 3 diseases I’ve mentioned above, account for more than 75% of the life insurance industry’s critical illness claims.
That’s a pretty important bit of statistical info don’t you think?
As a current life insurance policy holder or perhaps even someone who is looking to take out critical illness cover for the very first time, wouldn’t it make your life so much easier if you knew exactly what people were claiming against?
I mean if you know that life insurers are paying out more than 75% of their critical illness claims for 1. Cancer 2. Strokes 3. Heart Disease, your purchasing decision should already be made up.
You need critical illness cover. I’m not trying to sell you on the idea, the stats paint the grim picture all on their own.
And if you aren’t convinced here are a few more bits of info that will rock your socks off:
- Statistically women are at higher risk of contracting a critical illness. And statistically they have less insurance than the guys.
- 130 heart attacks & 240 strokes occur every day. A quarter of those result in death
- 1 in 3 men and 1 in 4 women will have a heart condition before they are 60.
Perhaps it’s time to head the warning! Stress, diets and the general pace of life in 21st century are resulting in more & more serious illnesses.
It’s time to take out critical illness cover today!
