Critical illness insurance


Protect yourself so you don't have to choose between personal health and financial wellness.

Critical illness insurance

Critical illness insurance pays a lump-sum, tax-free benefit if you are diagnosed with a critical illness covered under your policy. You can use this benefit for whatever you need — for example, paying your bills (including your mortgage), seeking alternative health care, extending your time off work, or giving a family member time off to help take care of you. 

Critical illness insurance is provided by Prospera Insurance Agencies Ltd.

Critical illness insurance is right for you if:

  • You don’t want to take on debt or use your retirement savings to pay costs associated with a critical illness.
  • You couldn’t meet your financial needs if you weren’t able to work.
  • You’re self-employed.

How critical illness insurance helps:

  • Give yourself and your family financial peace of mind while you recover.
  • Get a lump-sum payment you can use in any way you wish.
  • Create your own safety net if you don’t have benefits coverage.

Critical illness or disability insurance

With critical illness insurance, you receive a lump sum if you’re diagnosed with a condition that’s listed in your policy. 

With disability insurance, you receive a percentage of your regular income if you can’t work because of sickness or injury.
