Entry Age : The Entry age for this benefit is between 18 and 59. Most of the critical illnesses are covered till age 95.

Maximum Amount : The maximum amount of critical illness benefit available on Futura is the lower of $1,250,000 or the life cover selected.

Inclusive Benefit : The Critical Illness Benefit on Zurich Futura is an inclusive benefit, which means that, the amount of critical illness claim paid, reduces the life cover to that extent.

For Eg : If a UAE resident has a Zurich Futura with $500,000 life cover and $400,000 critical illness cover. If they are paid a claim of $400,000 on diagnosis of a critical illness, their life cover will come down to $100,000, after deducting the critical illness claim.

Subsequently in the event of  death, their beneficiary will receive $100,000 as death claim.
