Critical Illness
Insurance that protects employee assets.


Help covering out-of-pocket expenses when critical illness strikes.

As health care costs continue to rise, the value of supplemental insurance coverage becomes more important. Coverage from ManhattanLife helps protect an employee’s and their family’s assets in the event of a critical illness.

ManhattanLife offers two different critical illness policies – ManhattanLife Critical Illness and Cancer, a lump sum policy that is part of our Prestige series, and Critical Illness Insurance through our Premier series. Both deliver peace of mind by helping employees and their families cover a variety of expenses.
