Illnesses that used to be fatal are now more survivable. Although this is good news, surviving an illness can often create financial pressure. Alongside the increase in survival rates, comes the need for increased financial support.
Every year 146,000 people suffer a heart attack. 52,000 of those people will survive.* Most people have life insurance for when they die, but what about insurance if you live?
7 out of 10 cancer patients suffer a loss of income or higher costs as a result of their diagnosis.*
The younger and healthier you are, the lower your monthly premiums. So it pays to be prepared.
