Cancer Cover


Serious Illness policies pay a lump sum if you get one of the illnesses described in the policy.


However, if we analyse all the claims paid by insurers on their female customers we notice that 9 out of 10 claims are for cancer. But serious illness policies are expensive, so Zurich have developed a policy that is cheaper because it covers just Cancer.



Women between the age of 18 to 60 can, subject to acceptance, purchase Cancer Cover. The policy will pay you a lump sum if you are diagnosed with:


Breast Cancer

Gynae Cancer

Lung Cancer

Bowel Cancer

Stomach Cancer

Malignant Melanoma Skin Cancer.




For example a policy covering €100,000 of cancer cover for 20 years would cost-


Female age 25 = €11.53 a month

Female age 35 = €22.37 a month.

Female age 45 = €50.28 a month
