Multiple event coverage

PARACHUTE Complete policies don’t terminate after the payment of a first claim. With multiple event coverage, you and your spouse can make up to four claims at 100% of your respective coverage amounts.There must be a continuous 90-day gap between diagnoses, and each claim must belong to a different category.

Multiple cancer benefit

If you or your spouse receives a payment for a cancer (life-threatening) claim, you may still be covered for future cancer (life-threatening) claim(s) under the multiple cancer benefit.

Early diagnosis benefit

Some conditions, while not life-threatening, may still generate unplanned expenses and require time off work. If you're diagnosed with an early diagnosis benefit condition, we'll pay you 10% of your coverage amount, so you can take the time you need to recover.

Charitable donations

Charitable organizations can provide valuable assistance if you or a loved one is diagnosed with a critical illness. That is why we will make a one-time $500 donation to the approved charity of your choice when your first claim is approved and paid.
