I’m confused is all standalone critical illness plan now a multi claim only? Single claim ci cannot be a standalone as they need to lump tgt with term insurance and tpd??

So if I put 100k for death ,tpd and ci if I happen to be diagnosed with ci only ci 100k will be pay out to me and the plan will be closed. I heard now there is no standalone single claim ci mostly is multi claim standalone ci. So if I want to get tpd and death plus a standalone ci single claim any examples? I’m confuse.

This is why it is an industry practise to simply lump it together with death and disability to ensure comprehensive coverage while ensuring that all premiums are paid before you retire.

Hey there!

There are quite a few single claim CI plans. Depending on your needs, you can get it exclusively if you don't want a reduction in your death benefit.

In general, multi-pay CI plans are often sold because of its comprehensiveness so whether you're looking at single claim or multi-pay CI plans, do consult a licensed financial advisor to evaluate your objectives and needs.
