Life & Critical Illness Insurance
Most people have two main protection needs that can be covered by life insurance (often known as life assurance): paying off large debts like your mortgage, family protection, where you leave behind money for your family to live on after you’ve died. Different types of insurance policies are good for different protection needs..
Critical Illness insurance will pay a specified lump sum upon the diagnosis of a serious illness that is covered in the policy. The purpose of the cover is to provide you with the funds for treatment and recovery, as well as other necessary expenses. The advantage of this cover is that once the payout is given, you are free to spend the money however you wish.
Income protection pays out if you’re unable to work due to accident or sickness. Alongside life insurance, income protection is a must-have insurance for most working adults, but only a few of us currently have it.
Imagine the circumstances. through no fault of your own you lose your income because you become unemployed. Or you’re unable to work because of an accident. Your mortgage will still need to be paid, as will other family household outgoings like credit cards, loans, council tax, utility bills and even life cover. So what can you do?
Family Income Benefit
Family Income Benefit is an innovative type of life insurance product, which is useful and extremely good value when compared to some other types of life or health insurance.
As with term assurance policies, family income benefit policies provide cover on death if you die during the policy term. But instead of a lump sum, it gives regular set payments (income) for the rest of the term of the contract. Premiums remain level throughout, and if you live beyond the end of the policy there will be no pay out. This means that it is an attractive product for those who would like to ensure that their family will maintain a regular income after their death, rather than a one-off payment, which could potentially be wasted.
Family income benefit is particularly attractive to those who like to know they have a regular monthly income and would rather not have to worry about complex investment decisions.
Buildings & Contents Insurance
Home insurance is in essence the ‘purchase of a promise,’ which assumes that, if an unforeseen event happens, you can rely upon the insurer to put the situation back to normal again. But what would happen if you found out that you weren’t covered?
A recent report found that 50% of insurance policyholders were not confident that they had the right cover in place. Are you?
