Why should you take out personal insurance?
Most people take out insurance on their home, vehicles and the most important valuables. However, the most important asset – health – often remains uninsured.
It pays to take out personal insurance to make sure that you get the best possible care if you run into health problems. An illness or injury typically occurs suddenly and unexpectedly. With a personal insurance policy, you can ensure that you get the best care without delay and quickly return to your normal life. Personal insurance also provides financial security for your family if you, as the policyholder, die due to an illness or injury.
What does personal insurance cover?
Compensation payable under personal insurance depends on the type of insurance you choose.
Health insurance provides cover for your health against medical, examination or rehabilitation costs arising from an illness or injury. Travel insurance provides cover for your health and, if you so choose, for your luggage when you travel abroad. Life insurance provides lump-sum compensation if the insured person dies due to an illness or injury. You can buy a life insurance policy for yourself or get joint cover which is a life insurance policy for two persons. OP Critical Illness and Life Cover consists of the following three components: cover for critical illness, accidental permanent disability cover, and life insurance.
