A stellar year for the Moneyfacts Critical Illness Cover Star Ratings 2022

Moneyfacts is pleased to announce the Moneyfacts Annual Star Ratings 2022 for Critical Illness Cover.

  • The Moneyfacts Annual Star Ratings 2022 for Critical Illness Cover looks at the illnesses covered alongside level and decreasing term assurance.
  • Over 150 fields of information per product were collected for assessment.
  • The ratings cover over 70 illnesses, along with other crucial areas such as total and permanent disability (TPD) and less advanced cancers.

The products awarded Five or Four-Star Ratings offer the most comprehensive range of standout features and competitive charges, which set them apart from the rest of the market.

The instantly recognisable Moneyfacts badge of quality has for over 30 years helped inform consumers comparing critical illness cover. About nine out of 10 people agree that a Star Rating from an independent and impartial company could influence their decision in considering taking out a Financial Services product.* (*Source: Moneyfacts Group plc, Financial Services online consumer survey 4/21).
