Parents are unsure if critical illness cover extends to their children

Ageas Protect

Just 6% of parents have a critical illness policy in place, but one out of three has no idea whether or not their policy covers their children, according to research from Ageas Protect.


Of the one million parents who have a policy, 35% are just themselves covered while their children are not.


Andy Milburn of Ageas Protect says: "We need to educate existing critical illness customers on the value of their existing cover, especially parents.”
