Aviva extends child critical illness cover to age 21

Aviva sign 480

Aviva has extended its critical illness cover to protect consumers’ children up to the age of 21 if they are still in full time education.

Previously, the provider would cover children under the parent’s CI policy up to the age of 18.

In July, Aviva increased the maximum child CI benefit from £20,000 to £25,000. This is an additional benefit, meaning the policy will still be in force following a claim for a child.

Aviva chief underwriter Robert Morrison says: “If a parent needs to take time off work to care for a child who is seriously ill, the additional child CI benefit can offer some financial support, without affecting the sum assured. This can be a great comfort to the family at a very stressful time.”
