MetLife Offers White Paper on Critical Illness Benefits

November 12, 2010 ( – MetLife has announced the release of a new white paper that examines the awareness of critical illness insurance (CII) among employees and the financial impact that a critical illness can have on a typical U.S. household.

In addition to providing results of MetLife research on critical illness benefits, Critical Times Require Critical Solutions outlines steps employers can take to help employees obtain the right amount of protection.  

MetLife found only 28% of full-time employees said they have heard of critical illness insurance (CII), but many of those confused it with another product. In addition, 55% of full-time working Americans are somewhat or extremely concerned that a critical medical condition could impact the financial well-being of their families (see Critical Illness Policy Awareness Extremely Low).
