When life takes an unexpected turn, accelerated serious illness cover from Zurich Ireland can bring you peace of mind in a difficult time.
What is it?
Accelerated serious illness cover is usually available as an optional benefit that can be purchased as part of a life insurance policy. If it is added to a policy, then the sum insured is payable on death or earlier if the life assured is diagnosed with a serious illness covered by the policy.
How it works
If you took out a life insurance policy to the value of €150,000, and you include accelerated serious illness cover of €100,000, if you are diagnosed with a serious illness covered by the policy, you could claim €100,000 serious illness benefit. If you subsequently pass away during the policy term, the remaining €50,000 will be paid to your beneficiaries.
