Insurance for accident or sickness protection
Despite the 'it will never happen to me' approach, the uncertainties in life will, for the unfortunate few, include such challenges as accidents or sickness, possibly rendering them unable to work; for those with the foresight to take out an income protection insurance policy, these unforeseeable circumstances will hopefully be less of a challenge as their income protection insurance will provide financial help by replacing their lost monthly income in the event that they are unable to work due to accident or illness.
"Unfortunately, due to the current climate and the effect that Covid-19 has had on the employment market and job security in general, it is not possible to arrange Unemployment Cover at this time. Insurance providers will still consider cover for accidents and sickness but not redundancy"
The benefit of an accident or sickness income protection policy is that, as the name implies, it will pay a regular sum of money to replace a proportion of your normal income if you cannot work for an extended period. State benefits such as Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), Incapacity Benefit, Jobseeker's Allowance and maybe Income Support may help, but they will frequently not enable you to maintain the level of income that you previously enjoyed. An appropriate ASU insurance policy will help you to 'top up' your monthly income close to the level that you had previously earned.
Sometimes known as permanent health insurance (PHI) plans, an income protection policy does not have to cost a lot each month and brings with it the peace of mind from knowing that, if the worst happens, you are insured against losing your monthly earnings due to an accident, becoming ill or indeed losing your job.
