Critical illness/Cancer insurance: For cancers, heart attacks, paralysis, renal failures and other sudden and catastrophic changes, this policy generally pays a lump sum cash benefit for workers with these conditions, ranging from $10,000 to $1 million, depending on the policy and applicable benefits.
