Rheumatoid Arthritis What is it? Rheumatoid Arthritis is a long-term condition, which affects the hands, feet and wrists, causing pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints. It is usually first diagnosed in people between 40 and 50 years old. Symptoms can, however, begin in younger people. We will pay a claim on the diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis, and make further payments as the severity increases.
Sara, aged 32, has a VitalityLife Plan with Life Cover and Serious Illness Cover for £90,000. She also selected Protected Life and Serious Illness Cover. In 2017, Sara was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She made a claim in her Serious Illness Cover and received £9,000, a 10% payout from Vitality which would not have been paid out by any other provider on the market.
Because Sara had selected Protected Life and Serious Illness Cover, her cover remains unchanged, leaving her with the full original cover amount of £90,000 giving her the peace of mind knowing that her cover is still in place when she needs it most.
