Can you take out a life insurance policy with critical illness cover?

I’m considering either a critical illness policy or a life insurance policy, is there anything that’s combined?

Thanks very much for your question.

With life insurance policies it is possible to include critical illness cover which means that the plan would pay out if you were to suffer a serious illness or injury. Policies typically cover around 30- 50 medical conditions, including cancer, heart attack and stroke. The exact conditions covered will vary according to the provider and will be stated in the policy documentation.

With mortgage life insurance critical illness cover can be added to level term and decreasing term policies.

Very happy with the advice I received from Jake Beale at Drewberry on my income protection. All sorted in two short easy phone calls.

Matteo listened carefully to my requirements and came up with an insurance policy that significantly outperformed the best offer I had managed to find in the market. I am impressed by Drewberry and will of course recommend them to many of my friends!
