Surviving a critical illness can take a financial toll on employees and their families. Critical illness insurance helps supplement key benefits such as medical and disability coverage by providing a lump sum cash benefit. This can be used to help pay for additional expenses such as medical deductibles, travel cost, home healthcare, lost income of a spouse or even a vacation.
Voluntary critical illness insurance from Principal Life covers the five most common critical illnesses:
- Coronary artery bypass graft
- Heart attack
- Major organ failure
We offer voluntary coverage for groups with as few as 5 lives (50 in Florida and Vermont). Must be sold with another coverage. Some provisions may vary or not be available in some states.
