Could your household survive financially with the loss of your income?
What is Personal Accident Insurance?
This is a contractual agreement between an insurance provider and policy holder.
The insurance provider agrees to pay the policy holder a monthly income should they be unable to continue working due to an accident.
In return for this, the policy holder will pay the insurance provider a monthly premium.
This insurance policy is also known as Accident, Sickness & Unemployment Insurance or ASU Cover.
Please note that this policy will run for a maximum of 1-2 years dependent upon your policy.
Do I really need Personal Accident Insurance?
We can never predict an accident which is why we never expect to be involved in one.
Millions of us have accidents every year whether itís inside the home, playing sports, recreation events, at work, in the car etc and if your not prepared for it then not having Accident Sickness and Unemployment Cover & being involved in an accident can not only can it be an inconvenience on your life but it can also have a devastating effect on your finances.
Do you have mortgage or rent payments, any loans or outstanding finance?
If so, could you and your family continue to pay these financial commitments whilst you are on the road to recovery.
Employers sick pay will usually only pay you for up to 4 weeks and then you have to rely on measly state benefits (and thatís only if you are eligible to them).
