Cancer can happen to anyone at any age. The number of oncology-related claims I put in are increasing year-on-year. The right cover won’t change an illness, but it is going to bring peace of mind and brace against any financial impact on one’s life.

Be aware of your benefits. Many people don’t know that they have cover through their employer - called Group risk. Very often there’s a form of dread disease cover through this policy too. A good financial needs assessment would reveal it all.
