Critical Illness Insurance

Consider the possibility

There are many things you can prepare for in life: retirement, marriage, a new house, etc… However, with an increase in the incidence of things such as cancer, being prepared for a critical illness should now be a part of that list.

According to recent statistics, Canadians are 10 times more likely to be unable to work due to a critical illness than to die before the age of 65. Most of us do not realize that critical illnesses are affecting people in the prime of their working lives.

In fact, it is estimated that one in two heart attack victims is under the age of 65. As well, the incidence of cancer has risen dramatically, with a new case of cancer diagnosed every four minutes. As alarming as these statistics may appear, advances in medicine have produced a great number of survivors who do make full recoveries. However, although many of these people survive physically, the financial outcome of a critical illness may reach beyond their available resources.

Luckily, one of the main benefits of having Critical Illness Insurance is that when a critical illness is diagnosed, you receive a lump-sum to use whichever way you need to. Here at Drover Financial, we know how much of a difference this financial boost can make, and that’s why we offer separate coverage for Critical Illness Insurance.
