    Critical Illness

    Reliance Standard’s Voluntary Group Critical Illness insurance provides a fixed, lump-sum benefit when critical illness strikes. This includes heart attack, stroke, paralysis and more. The VCI plan offers employers a valuable benefit at no direct cost and offers employees an excellent opportunity to purchase valuable coverage in increments that are right for their family, through convenient payroll deduction.

    Some 1.4 million Americans were diagnosed with cancer last year. American men and women have a 2 in 3 chance of living at least five years after a cancer diagnosis – AACII, 2010

    These benefits are paid directly to the insured and may be used for any reason, from deductibles and prescriptions to transportation and child care.
