Why do financial planners recommend everyone to have critical illness insurance?
In the past, the chances of survival when diagnosed with serious illnesses were low. Today, it is quite the opposite and the survival rates are increasingly high.
People who do not have insurance and who are struck by illness must most of the time stop working, thus losing their income and dipping into their savings to finance their rehabilitation and to pay their health costs. Once the disease has passed, many come to realize that they have liquidated all the accumulated savings of a lifetime and that they are back to square one.
To avoid such a situation, financial planners firmly believe that critical illness insurance eliminates this risk. In the event of a serious illness, you will have benefits that will replace your income, and you will not have to dip into your investments and your savings to pay for your treatments. We must therefore see critical illness insurance as an investment!
