You have responsibilities – to yourself and to your family. If you get sick you need to rely on others for help, and your family still needs attention. If a family member gets sick, you attend to their needs but the demands of life still go on. Trustmark talked to patients and to those giving care when developing the new Critical LifeEvents insurance. This coverage is designed to focus on critical illness the way it is experienced by those closest to it.

You can purchase Critical LifeEvents Insurance for yourself and/or your dependents. This coverage will pay a lump sum benefit for certain critical illnesses when the illness at early or later diagnosis.

  • A replenishing annual benefit helps you deal with a new or recurring covered condition.
  • There is no lifetime maximum on the number of payouts
  • Events that trigger a benefit are simple and easy to understand.
