Citical Illness Coverage for Firefighters

firefighter cancer

Even though firefighters face a variety of potentially serious injuries on the job, cancer is a major health concern for those in the emergency service industry.

VFIS is dedicated to not only educating the fire service about the dangers of cancer, but also protecting the health of firefighters.

VFIS offers critical illness coverage that provides lump-sum benefits for both volunteer and career firefighters for certain forms of life-threatening cancers, strokes and heart attacks. The following are conditions of coverage:

  • The coverage must be in effect for a Covered Person for at least 90 days prior to the diagnosis of the condition
  • The Covered Person must survive for a period of 30 days after the diagnosis (The VFIS Group Term Life Insurance Policy is intended to provide survivor benefits in the event the Covered Person does not survive)
  • The Covered Person is under age 75 when first diagnosed with cancer
