Intro Title

Critical Illness Cover is designed to ease the financial pressures of suffering from a severe illness, by paying a lump-sum amount if you are diagnosed with, and survive, a life altering illness such as cancer, heart attack, stroke, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.

Financial stress can contribute to or exacerbate your diagnosis.

Critical Illness Cover helps to alleviate the financial stress, so that you can focus on managing your illness. At a time like this, we want you to focus all your energies on getting better.


PPS Critical Illness Cover now includes: Low severity conditions, including early cancer, like Group 1 cancer of  the prostate and micro-carcinoma of the thyroid and bladder which were previously excluded. Flexibility for members to choose to access funds for medical events that are unlikely to necessitate significant lifestyle adjustments. With reinstatement of cover, receive up to 200% of your cover amount. After you claim for a cancer or cardiovascular condition, you may qualify for a second 100% payment.


We’ve included a broader range of benefit options available for an additional fee, including level premiums for members who prefer to pay the same premium for the duration of the policy, and we now offer both age-rated and level premiums giving members choice and flexibility.
