Critical Illness Cover
Fedgroup’s Critical Illness Cover offers a standalone benefit
Should an employee or their spouse contract a life-threatening disease or disorder
The simple lump sum structure offered – either a multiple of the member’s annual salary or a flat rand amount – ensures predictability and certainty for complete peace of mind.

*Payout percentages as measured against the ASISA critical illness definitions
An objective and fair system is used to asses a critical illness, based on medical impairment definitions and the activity of daily living.
The impact that an illness, (or a combination of illnesses) may have on the daily life of a member is also considered if a claim does not qualify against a specified illness. We do not rate according to the severity of a critical illness. If an employee meets the clear, simple definitions, we will pay the full benefit. We will also pay out on multiple claims for unrelated illnesses, as the benefit doesn’t fall away after an initial claim is made.
