Legal & General’s group critical illness cover now includes cover for aplastic anaemia, bacterial meningitis, cardiomyopathy, encephalitis and liver failure.
In addition, the insurer has adjusted the survival period for most illnesses from 30 to 14 days and is increasing the value of support available to claimants.
Their maximum benefit can now be up to five times scheme earnings or £500,000, whichever is less.
L&G’s underwriting and benefits director group protection, Vanessa Sallows, comments: “These changes show that Legal & General is adapting its policies to meet more of the needs of its customers.”
