  • Uk Critical illness insurance - taxable?

    Hi,

    I've been very lucky and my criticial insurance has paid out following my diagnosis (glad now I took the policy out 11 years ago), but is it taxable?

    I don't think it is, but does anyone in UK know whether or not you've still got to declare it on a tax return? Tax info. seems to suggest that you have to for life insurance, but I'm not clear if that applies to a critical illness insurance payout.

    Anyone know? Thanks!

    Hi Olp,

    I also claimed successfully on critical illness insurance.

    It is entirely tax-free, as you have not earned the money; it is compensation.

    Spend it wisely!

    Cheers,
    Adrian
