Critical Illness Insurance for contractors
As a contractor, you won’t be able to avoid getting ill but you can certainly protect yourself and your family should the unfortunate event of critical illness arise.
In today’s society, we are more prone to heart attacks, cancer, strokes and other stress-related diseases. Avoidance is hard but protection is key.
Falling ill means that those monthly bills soon add up. Not being able to pay your mortgage will become an added stress that, when you are ill, you will certainly want to avoid. That is why it is vital that you take out a level of cover to protect you from any such issue.
As a responsible broker, we feel we have a professional duty to help you financially plan for the unthinkable. Critical illness policies are able to work alongside your permanent health insurance, however, unlike permanent health insurance critical illness cover pays out in a lump sum.
How will Life and Critical Illness Insurance help?
Your critical illness insurance will not only help you to pay your mortgage, outstanding debts or loans but will also help towards medical bills and treatment that you may need. There are enough worries without the added pressure of unnecessary ones. As a contractor, you can take the right measures to ensure that you are fully protected.
Some things to consider when looking at the policy required are:
- Affordability of policy: Premiums will be ongoing and have to remain affordable for you to maintain the insurance.
- Cover Amount: You are able to choose the amount of cover over time if that is required – if your mortgage reduces – for example.
- Payout Terms: Do you require a lump sum or an annual amount to support the family
