nature of your activities. Your personal adviser at Sports Financial Services will discuss this
in detail with you.

● What is your current military role and does it take you on international travel? (e.g.,
UK, Europe and/or worldwide)
● What type of military activities do you participate in?

Such questions, and many more, will help us find the facts that insurance companies require
in relation to you, your occupation and your lifestyle.
Differences between Military Life Insurance Vs Critical Illness Cover and Income Protection
Critical Illness Cover:
Many who seek critical illness cover are seeking peace of mind. It is important for anyone
who takes part in hazardous activities to make sure that they disclose this during their
enquiry as this affects what type of cover, they can obtain.
Cover for some sports and occupations can be offered at standard rates with no special
terms imposed whilst participation in other sports and occupations may result in premium
loadings, special terms, restrictions or exclusions. Your sports and occupations specialist at
Sports Financial Services will talk you through the options available to you.
Income protection is important to consider, particularly if you take part in hazardous
activities. Income protection can provide some reassurance if you are unable to work due to
injury or sickness. This can help contribute towards any financial commitments such as
mortgage payments to credit card bills.
Again, applications for income protection are dependent on many factors, for example, if you
have had significant time off work in the past due to injury or sickness, this can affect your
cover. Other factors that can affect income protection include participation in some extreme
sports and activities which may result in premium loadings, restrictions or exclusions. Your
adviser at Sports Financial Services will discuss your needs and the options available to you.
