More Improved Life Insurance Cover

Share Article

Axa has enhanced its critical illness plan by reducing premiums and improving definitions. Enhancements include low-grade prostate cancer cover, enhanced children’s cover and premium reductions where Axa is unable to cover certain individuals for cancer and multiple sclerosis.

For people with children Axa has increased the percentage of the sum assured they will pay out under the children’s cover benefit from 25 per cent to 50 per cent, or £25,000, whichever is lower as part of their critical illness cover. In addition the number of children eligible for cover has now doubled from two to four.

As well as taking standard life insurance cover which pays out in the event of death, many consumers should also take critical illness cover which will pay out in the event of a number of specified serious illnesses.

Commenting on the improved terms David Hollingworth said ‘Sometimes these policies have been criticised for being too restrictive. It is encouraging that life insurance providers are now offering greater flexibility through premium reductions and additional benefits so that consumers get cover at the optimum price’
