Date:5/29/2009

Scottish Widows paid over £28m in critical illness cover claims between November 2007 and October 2008, Only 2% of critical illness claims were declined due to non-disclosure, The three main reasons for claims - cancer, heart related and stroke

Richard Jones, Head of Protection at Scottish Widows commented, "We're pleased to have increased the claims we've paid and to have significantly reduced the number of claims declined due to non-disclosure. This reduction in non-disclosure can be put down to a number of factors including the adoption of the Association of British Insurers Code of Conduct on non-disclosure, which has increased the number of proportionate claims that are paid. In addition to this, we've simplified application forms and processes and also produced literature to help Financial Advisers and customers understand the importance of disclosing all relevant information."

Over the course of 2008, the main three reasons for a claim were cancer, heart related and stroke. The average age for female claimants was 45, with men three years older at 48.

The average term of policy at claim is five years and cancer is still the main reason for a claim by both men and women, with breast cancer affecting 51% o
