Improvements to group critical illness cover

legal and general logo

Legal & General's group critical illness cover now also includes cover for aplastic anaemia, bacterial meningitis, cardiomyopathy, encephalitis and liver failure. In addition, the survival period has also been reduced from 30 to 14 days for most illnesses.


The insurer is also increasing the value of support available to claimants. Their maximum benefit can now be up to five times scheme earnings or £500,000 whichever is less


Vanessa Sallows at Legal & General says, "Employers and employees rely on critical illness cover to help them to cope with challenging circumstances. Expanding the range of illnesses means we can help more people when they are ill."
