We Offer 4 Different Types of Financial Protection Insurance
Financial protection insurance offers financial stability against a range of factors. If you were unable to work and not earn enough money to pay the rent / mortgage and bills – there is a certain type of cover that will support you for this. If you or your partner died, there is a different type of cover to support with paying the rent or mortgage. Financial protection insurance comes in many shapes and sizes. We have removed the jargon and simply explain the different types of cover available below:
Renters Income Protection Cover is ideal for those currently renting in the private rental sector in the UK. It has been designed to offer protection for a large percentage of people who would not be able to protect their income should they find themselves unable to work.
It works through paying out a monthly benefit to people who find themselves unable to work due to an unforeseen illness or accident. It can be used to cover the cost of rent, or it can be put towards other living expenses such as utilities, medical bills, and childcare.
Critical Illness Cover pays out a Tax-Free lump sum if you are diagnosed with a serious illness, offering additional protection to Life Insurance.
Each provider has a different list of critical illnesses that they will pay out for. In general, it covers you against most cancers, heart attack, stroke, kidney or liver failure and multiple sclerosis.
Unfortunately, there are a huge number of illnesses and disabilities that can affect us at any point in life. Critical Illness Insurance cannot cover absolutely everything but what you are covered for will be outlined in your policy.
You might come across a policy that will cover ten or twenty main illnesses whereas other policies may cover 100s. That is why it’s good to use a specialised broker like The Insurance Surgery to find you the policy that is best for you.
Income Protection is designed to pay up to 70% of a working individual’s annual pre-tax income as a monthly benefit (tax free) should they be off work due to an unexpected or sudden illness or injury.
With an Income Protection policy in place, you are not restricted on what type of illnesses or injuries you can claim on. You can claim as many times as you want throughout the policy term, with short and long-term options are available starting from 1yr, 2yrs, 5yrs or full cover which usually insures you up to retirement age.
If you are working full or part time hours, Income Protection is a great way to become financially resilient. This will allow you to pay the bills and rent or mortgage, while you are unable to support yourself and the ones you live with.
