Insurance & Protection

Few things in life can provide more peace of mind than  having a secure financial future.  Whether it’s your family, home  or lifestyle, knowing that the  things that are most important  to you are protected if the worst  should happen means you can  enjoy the here and now without  worrying about what the future  may hold. 

Borrowing

Many people use multiple credit cards in their daily lives, and it’s not uncommon to take out  a loan to cover home improvements, purchase  a vehicle, or to consolidate debt. Mortgages are likely to be the most significant credit people will ever have. The cost of repaying multiple creditors may not pose a problem when you can rely on your monthly income, but what if that should change? It’s easy to see how debt can pile up quickly.


There are different types of insurance which could help to ensure you don’t encounter serious debt problems in the short-term if your circumstances should change suddenly.  

 

Income protection insurance (IPI) is  a solution that can provide you with an income  to cover the cost of your credit repayments and essential outgoings. 

Redundancy

Whether you see it coming or it comes as a shock, being made redundant can bring numerous challenges, the most pressing of which is usually the loss of your earnings. It’s important to note that most insurance policies won’t cover you for the first  

three months of your redundancy, so it’s wise to have savings to cover this period.

You should keep in mind that if you were aware redundancy was a probability within 6 months of taking out your policy then it’s unlikely you’ll be able to make a claim. So thinking ahead and preparing for the unexpected is particularly important.

Short-Term Illness

Many people assume they’ll be adequately protected by sick pay should they suffer from an illness which is temporary in nature. However, the Statutory Sick Pay employers are legally obliged to provide is only £99.35 per week, so unless your employer runs to supplement this you could be seriously out of pocket.


Income protection insurance is designed to cover situations where you are no longer able to work due to illness or injury. Self-employed people can find income protection insurance particularly relevant, as their business may depend on them alone.  

Injury and Critical Illness

Whether or not you maintain an active and healthy lifestyle, no one can predict their future health. The Office of National Statistics estimates that 149.3 million working days were lost due to sickness or injury in the UK during 2021.

 

Critical illnesses such as strokes, heart attacks and cancer can necessitate long recovery periods, and permanent disability resulting from injury can affect almost every area of someone’s life. They may also prevent sufferers from doing the same job they once did. If the need to replace your income due to critical illness or serious injury should arise, government benefits may not
provide sufficient relief.

Death

If you have children, a spouse or other family members who depend on your income, it’s worth thinking about how they’ll manage if you’re no longer there. Money is never going to be enough to compensate for the loss of a loved one, but it will  at least mean your family don’t have to deal with financial woes.


Life cover is a sensible option for anyone with dependents who relies on an income rather than being independently wealthy. Cover differs between policies, but most usually only pay out upon death. However, there are options if you’d like your policy to provide a payment upon a terminal diagnosis or serious disability.
