Everything You Always Wanted To Know About ChildMax
What is ChildMax?
It’s affordable insurance cover. It protects your pay if you take unpaid leave to care for your child after they become seriously ill, either through a major illness or by having an accident listed in the policy. ChildMax insurance will pay your take home salary, tax-free, on a monthly basis for a whole year.
Can anyone buy ChildMax?
Yes, so long as you are a UK resident in paid employment or self-employed. Your children must be over 3 months old and under 18 years old and either natural (biological), step (from marriage) or legally adopted.
How long does the cover last?
For 12 months. You can renew it every year to suit your circumstances. For instance, you can increase or decrease your cover in line with your salary and the changing needs of your family.
How much does it cost?
Starting from £49.50 for £1,000 monthly take home salary. The amount you pay depends on your pay, the number and age of your children. For example, if you have two children, aged 4 and 6, with a £1,600 monthly take home salary, then the amount you’ll pay will be £94.27 per year. With a 3 year-old and the same take home pay, you pay just £53.90 per year.
12 illnesses and 7 medical conditions from accidents. This includes: aplastic anaemia, bacterial meningitis, benign brain tumour, blindness, cancer, coma deafness, kidney failure, loss of a hand or foot, major organ transplant, multiple sclerosis, paralysis of limbs, stroke, third-degree burns, or traumatic brain injury.
How easy is it to claim?
It’s very easy. Once our UK claims handling team agrees your claim, you choose the best date to start your leave from work. This can be during your policy or any time within 10 months of the policy coming to an end.
3 reasons to buy a ChildMax Policy:
1. Peace of mind, knowing your children are covered for 7 medical conditions from accidents and 12 major illnesses.
2. Prepared, as your salary will be paid within 30 days of your claim being agreed.
3. Flexible, so if needed you can return to work part-time or another basis.
