Arsene Wenger is insured by Arsenal for £5 million under a Critical Illness Insurance Policy (CIC). What exactly is it?
It insures against the risk of some common illnesses which will make you unable to work. These include
• heart attack,
• multiple sclerosis,
• kidney failure,
• major organ transplants
• coronary artery by-pass surgery
Costs of Critical Illness Cover
With ordinary life insurance about 2.5-3x ordinary life assurance
How does it work
Either pays out a lump sum or provides an income if you are diagnosed as having one of a number of illnesses, including cancer, strokes and heart disease. It will pay out even if you make a full recovery.
Cash resulting from a CIC policy is paid directly to you, unlikemortgage payment protection insurance (MPPI), where the policy is paid direct to your mortgage lender.
