Family is important; that’s why it’s best to get expert advice to help protect what matters, when it matters!
Accident Sickness and Unemployment insurance is the only policy that covers you against losing your income through redundancy.
In the current climate of job uncertainty, knowing that you'll be able to keep up to date with your bills in the event of redundancy is one less thing to worry about, and having that peace of mind knowing that your family’s welfare and lifestyle can be maintained if you become unemployed due to job cuts, or simply through ill-health can be a weight of one's mind.
So what does ASU insurance provide me?
ASU insurance is a time-limited insurance product that provides short term assistance in paying your debts, in the event that you are temporarily unable to work.
ASU cover usually starts a month after you stop work, and pays out for a limited period of 12 or 24 months, depending on the policy. As independent advisers we take a whole of market approach, and look at all available ASU policies to find the cover that’s right for you.
When considering ASU insurance, reading the small print is essential, as there are important differences between the various policies available. It is particularly important to check which health conditions are covered by each policy, and if you have had a particular health issue in the past, to make sure that is included, or, more importantly, that it is not excluded for you.
Accident, Sickness & Unemployment insurance typically costs £4.10 a month for every £100 of monthly benefit. This is based on a 39-year-old customer choosing £1,000 of accident, sickness and unemployment monthly benefit with claims paid after a 30-day deferred period. The cost of this insurance depends on a number of factors, such as your age, where you live and your occupation. As a result, the cost you will pay is based on your own circumstances.
