I believe that Child Critical Illness coverage is extremely important and something every child should have. I say this with conviction and as a father, who purchased policies for both my children. Child CI, is an affordable way of providing much needed financial support in the event one of our children become critically ill. I’m a strong advocate for this coverage and hopefully after you read this blog, you will feel as passionate about it as I do.
-Coverage amounts between $10,000 to $1,000,000 per child

–20 year pay. The policy is fully paid up and the coverage is in force for life after the 20th year. (You only pay premiums for 20 years). Coverage will be in force for the rest of your child’s life and you don’t need to pay for it. It can also be transferred over to your child at any time after they reach the age of majority
