7- Reliance General Insurance Co. Limited - Critical Illness Insurance
Reliance Critical Illness Policy
The thought of a critical illness is unpleasant and least desirable to discuss. This is because apart from having an adverse effect on one’s health it also leaves a devastating effect on an individual’s financial situation.
How does one ensure that they continue to enjoy the standard of living that they enjoyed before a critical illness? It therefore becomes important to prepare oneself to deal with this unfortunate situation.
The survival rates for those afflicted with a critical illness are rising. However, despite their survival, the sufferers often remain incapable of earning a living.
These leave a impact on the family finances as the family loses the monetary contribution of an earning member.
We ensure that during times like these, you remain positive and cheerful
