No one likes to think that
something bad will happen to
them, but if you couldn’t work
due to a serious illness, how would you
manage financially? Could you survive
on savings or sick pay from work? If not,
you may need some other way to keep
paying the bills – and you might want to
consider income protection insurance.
Currently, 10.8 million UK households
are at risk of their income falling by at
least a third if the main earner stopped
working due to ill health.
You might think this may not happen
to you (and, of course, we hope it
doesn’t), but it’s important to recognise
that no one is immune to the risk of
illness and accidents.
