What is the GRA Group Specified Illness Cover Plan?

If you suffer an illness, the reality is that you may face significant extra expenses. This Plan recognises this fact by giving you a tax-free lump sum if you are diagnosed with one of the Specified Illnesses that it covers.

The lump sum can be vital, as extra funds are often needed to pay for medical bills, travel to and from hospital, pay for extra childcare, etc.
