What is group critical illness?


A group critical illness policy is designed to offer financial security to the employees of a company or organisation. If a group member is diagnosed with a critical illness listed in the policy, the plan provides a lump sum payout. The individual can utilise this benefit to cover various expenses, such as medical treatments, rehabilitation, or any other financial responsibilities that may arise during their illness.
