CRITICAL ILLNESS INSURANCE
We all realize that many individuals who have been diagnosed with what at one time were considered fatal illnesses are now overcoming the odds and surviving.
Unfortunately, it places a tremendous emotional strain on the family and many times accompanied by an overwhelming financial burden.
Your financial security is most threatened when you are told by a physician that you have suffered a heart attack or stroke o that the tissue taken during a biopsy is, in fact malignant.
Crisis Recovery is designed to ease the financial pressure by providing a lump sum cash benefit paid directly to yo upon the diagnosis of a covered illness.
Use your Crisis Recovery benefits any way you wish.
Treatments that are not covered by or limited by your existing medical insurance.
Select the amount that’s right for you.
You may apply for up to $50,000 of valuable critical illness protection. Children may apply for $10,000.

Reduction of Benefits Due To Age
After the first 12 months, We reserve the right, subject to 30 days (45 or 60 days depending on state) prior written notice to You at Your last known address, to establish a new schedule of premium rates; such schedule of rates will be effective on the following renewal date for all or any class of Insured’s covered by this Policy. Premiums are scheduled to change annually based upon each Insured’s attained age. Attained age means the age of the Insured on the Policy Effective Date of coverage and subsequent Policy anniversary.
Attained Age Pricing
This is in contrasts to a method called Issue Age Pricing where the premium starts out much higher but remains at the same level for several years or the life of the policy.
Which method is better?
In comparing this method to other insurance carriers that prices their product using Issue Age Pricing, we find that our method can save you as much as 20% to 30% (see graph) in the first 10 Years depending on your age.
