What is trauma insurance?
Trauma insurance or critical illness insurance is a lump-sum payment you make when you encounter a life-altering injury, or you are diagnosed with specific illnesses. Heart attacks, strokes, amputation, cancer, and Alzheimer’s are often covered by trauma insurance. It helps you to get back on your feet after such turmoil. The money you receive can be used for care, living expenses, debt payments, medical treatment, or to alleviate reduced work hours.
It is often bundled with other life insurances, but it can often be a stand-alone policy.

Do I really need trauma insurance?
In reality, we all need trauma insurance. It’s a tremendous failsafe, especially during these times when more and more of us suffer from significant illnesses at one point in our lives. And if you’re worried about a specific disease that runs in your family, or an ailment that you have a high likelihood of contracting, trauma insurance would be a great help for you.
Critical illnesses often take a massive toll on your lifestyle, especially on your finances. Not only are you forced to take time off from your work, but the expenses for rehabilitation and medical care will surely damage your financial structure.
Despite a physical recovery, the financial damage on you can take a toll. When you think about it, without insurance to back you up while you are down, picking up the pieces can prove too burdensome for the people you love and who rely on you.
What is the difference between TPD and trauma insurance?
Trauma insurance is often bundled with TPD insurance, and though they are similar, they differ in function.
Simply put, TPD insurance only pays you when you are unable to work indefinitely. On the other hand, trauma insurance helps you to get back on your feet once you are diagnosed for a specific range of critical medical events.
