Case Study

Sean and Diane had been married for eight years and had two small children. Diane, who had recently gone back to work, was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer.

Diane passed away only six months after her diagnosis. Both she and Sean had taken out life insurance after they got married. When they realised that Diane’s diagnosis was terminal, they made a claim to receive a payout, which was successful. 

This meant that Sean could take time off work to care for his wife in her last few months. Sean then used some of the payout to fill the income-gap while he worked part-time, so he could spend more time with his children after the loss of their mother.
