To make a valid life or critical illness claim Legal & General will ask for supporting evidence. For Legal & General to pay out on a critical illness claim, the illness you have must be one of the illnesses covered by your plan and meet the definition of the illness. All diagnosis and medical opinions must be from a medical specialist:
- who holds an appointment as a consultant at a UK hospital; and
- whose specialism we reasonably consider is appropriate to the cause of the claim.
If a claim is made under Terminal Illness Cover, then you must be terminally ill as described below:
Legal & General will pay a claim for Terminal Illness Cover if you are diagnosed as being terminally ill, and in the opinion of your hospital consultant and Legal & General’s Medical Officer, the illness is expected to lead to death within 12 months.
