Major illnesses and injuries can have a serious effect on your finances, especially if you have to stop work to deal with treatment – and pay for it.
No one wants to overcome something as major as cancer, for example, only to find they have no money in the bank.
That’s where trauma cover comes in. Trauma cover pays a lump sum on diagnosis of any one of a range of serious illnesses and injuries. Depending on your policy, this may include:
- Heart attack
- Major burns
- Kidney failure
- Lung disease
You can use the money to cover treatment expenses, day-to-day living costs, job retraining and even domestic assistance.
For more information on trauma cover or your overall risk cover requirements, talk to a risk adviser about your specific situation.Tags: risk adviser, serious illness, trauma cover
