Do I need insurance in case of critical illness?
Serious illness can drastically alter your life, and financial worries add to the burden. Insurance will not make you well, but it will help you get through a difficult situation. During a difficult time, you can get financial security and freedom of action.
Use the disbursement as you wish
You can spend an insurance disbursement however you want. Many people choose to work fewer hours, receive additional treatment at a private clinic, or make time for proper recovery and health-promoting activities.

What does critical illness insurance cover?
How insurance works in case of critical illness
- You can purchase the insurance when you are between the ages of 16 and 58, and it lasts until you are 67.
- When you order the insurance, you will be told to fill in a statutory health form.
- Choose a sum insured between NOK 100 000 and NOK 750 000 when you order online. You can also contact us if you require a larger sum insured.
- There is no tax on insurance disbursements.
- When the diagnosis is made and all relevant information is submitted, the settlement payment is made. The insured individual must be alive 30 days after the final diagnosis.
- If the illness/disorder manifests symptoms before 3 months after the agreement is approved, the insurance will not pay out. This is called a grace period or symptom clause.
- Even if you recover completely from your illness, the money is paid out.
