There are many young professionals who take on the role of being their families’ breadwinners. Are you one of them? Here are the reasons why we salute you for being a modern-day, real-life hero!
1 You provide a lifeline. By providing the family’s basic needs and more, loved ones can continue to dream and enjoy the gift of life. One such important need is protection, which you can secure for loved ones through a dependable life insurance plan with health coverage like BPI-Philam's Critical Care Max, a unit-linked health and life insurance plan that offers protection against 56 major critical illnesses, including cancer, heart attack, and stroke. With a financial benefit given upon diagnosis of any of these illnesses, your family remains protected while you focus on treatment and recovery. Its investment component also allows you to build a health fund that grows over time to pay for other medical costs.

2 You are a good role model. Not everyone is willing to trade a comfortable lifestyle for being responsible for others. But imagine what example you are setting for younger members of the family, whether siblings or nieces and nephews. Working hard, spending your hard-earned money wisely, and preparing for the future by securing protection are just some of the values you impart through your actions.

3 You strive to stay healthy. Because people depend on you, your health is your main asset to keep earning for the family. Striving to stay strong and healthy is good, but when unexpected health-related setbacks happen, it is wise to be ready with a protection plan.
To keep you motivated on your journey to a healthy and active lifestyle, Critical Care Max is integrated with a health and wellness program called Philam Vitality, which not only provides an upfront additional coverage of 20% to your policy and any attached add-ons but also rewards you for taking charge of your health.
