Unum enhances group critical illness cover 

Unum has added seven medical conditions to its group CI cover, taking the total to 40, and the scope of many of the insured events has been extended.

Unum, the financial protection specialist, has enhanced its group critical illness offering to meet the expectations of employees in the modern workforce.

The insurer has added seven medical conditions to the cover, taking the total to 40, and the scope of many of the insured events has been extended so customers will have even more confidence about what to expect when it comes to a claim.

Following the recent introduction of its online and telephone EAP service to its group life proposition, Unum's critical illness customers will also now have access to Unum LifeWorks.  This completes Unum's move to provide EAP support to all policyholders across all its group products, emphasising the importance of fast and practical support for employers and employees on everyday issues and when things start to go wrong. Andrew Potterton, Unum's head of proposition development, said, "These changes, when added to some sensible pricing adjustments, make for a highly competitive group CI proposition, that I hope will be particularly attractive to SMEs, whose needs we continue to focus on as we advance our product reach."
