What’s Your Protection Power?

Over 4 million self-employed are without financial protection [2], a worrying statistic. An excuse we often hear is “I’ll just put into my own savings pot every month, rather than pay a Life Insurance company.” So, you put £50 away into a bank account as you’re first month’s “payment” – the following month you injure yourself and you’re now going to be off work for a few months. Now what have you got for you and your family – £50…?!

Family Fears

While everybody needs a rainy-day savings fund, you would need a significant sum to match the sort of pay-outs that can be offered by an income protection policy.

With two thirds of self-employed worker’s households reliant on one wage earner’s income [2], how would you and your family cope without your income? The stats show that you are 26 times more likely to incapacitated and off work for more than 6 months, than to die before the age of 65 [3].

Super Contractors To The Rescue

With Contractor Income Protection, you can generally financially protect up to 70% of your gross salary.

It pays out a tax-free (under current legislation – tax year 2018/2019) monthly sum, which can be used to help ease any financial hardship whilst you’re unable to work.
