Critical Illness Insurance

While a major medical plan may pay for a good portion of the costs associated with a critical illness, there are a lot of expenses that may not be covered. McClatchy offers a supplemental critical illness plan to our benefit-eligible employees.

You can’t predict the future, but you can plan for it. McClatchy has partnered with Allstate to offer a critical illness plan to benefit-eligible employees. This plan can help give you the power to take control of your finances when faced with a covered critical illness. It pays benefits that can be used for non-medical expenses that health insurance might not cover. The cash benefit is in the form of a lump sum payment, which is paid directly to you after a covered diagnosis.  To learn more about this new benefit, check out the additional information below.
