Unless you have substantial savings to fall back on or a very good long term sick pay arrangement provided by your employer, the chances are you’ll find it very difficult to maintain your current standard of living.
Income Protection Insurance is designed to pay a regular income in the event of you being unable work because of an accident or illness.
Whether Income Protection is worthwhile insurance cover for you to have in place or not is dependent entirely on your own circumstances and situation.
You may have had the foresight to build up significant savings that are sufficient. If so, as long as you are not adverse to the idea of using that money to support your normal day to day living costs, it could be used to meet your income needs in the event of the main wage earner in the house being unable to work.
Your employer may provide a good sick pay arrangement for its employees that will provide you and your family with enough money to pay the bills and maintain your standard of living for a reasonable time period. You should investigate how much and for how long you would receive an income from your employer as some employers sick pay plans will pay out for months, whilst others may only pay for weeks or even a few days. In addition, you may also find that the level of income payable would not be enough for your family’s needs, in which case an Income Protection Policy that compliments the existing employer scheme may also be needed.
In both cases, you may only need to worry about what happens when these short term solutions are no longer viable.
However, if neither of these situations apply to you, or you are self-employed or run your own business, you should consider looking at Income Protection options to establish what is needed to provide you with some financial security in the event of you or the main wage earner of the household is unable to work due to an accident or illness.
Putting an appropriate income protection plan in place will provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that income is available for you to live off in the event of it not being forthcoming from your normal means of earning a living because of an accident or illness that was perhaps no fault of your own in the first place.
