Below is a list of "horrible" questions we should all ask ourselves. The list of course is not exhaustive.

  • When was the last time you reviewed your cover?

  • Have you got enough life insurance in place?

  • Have you got any life insurance in place?

  • Is it just the mortgage I have covered? What about the other bills?

  • Would my family survive financially if I suffered a critical illness?

  • What if I were unable to work for a long period of time? Then what?

  • Can I afford this insurance policy? Can I afford not to have this policy?

As its name suggests, critical illness cover pays out a lump sum or a regular income if you are diagnosed with a critical illness – this includes cancer, heart attacks and strokes.


Family income benefit insures against life or life and critical illness. Instead of receiving a lump sum, it pays a monthly income if the policyholder dies or is diagnosed with a critical illness whilst the policy is in force. The monthly income will continue at the level specified in the policy until the policy's termination date.


Income protection can provide a monthly income if you are diagnosed with an illness that may not be “critical”, but is severe enough to stop you going to work for a lengthy period. Psychological disorders and musculo-skeletal disorders are good examples of when Income Protection policies can pay out.
