Sickness and Accident
Sickness and Accident
Imagine this. Through no fault of your own you lose your income because you become unemployed. Or you're unable to work because of an accident. .Your loans such as your mortgage, car loan and credit cards will still need to be paid, as will other family household outgoings like council tax, utility bills and even life cover. So what can you do?
Many people make the mistake of thinking that should they fall ill or have an accident and lose the ability to work, the State will step in and sort it all out in the UK
This is wrong - the rules governing sickness benefit claims have changed dramatically in the past few years.
Before April 1995, you could qualify for long-term sickness benefit if you were rendered incapable, by sickness, accident or disability, of doing your own job of work. Now the rules state that you will only qualify for long-term sickness benefit if you cannot do any job of work.
In other words, only if you are completely incapacitated will the State help support you. This means that, to all intents and purposes, there are currently no long-term sickness benefits in the UK.
Even if you do succeed in getting long-term sickness benefit from the State - currently just over £60 per week - that benefit is now taxed.
This all means that private accident and sickness insurance is the only guaranteed way of being able to put a safety net under you and your dependants.
According to Norwich Union, of all the people currently unemployed, nearly 2 million people are off work for more than six months due to a long-term illness or injury. Also statistics show that you are almost 20 times more likely to suffer a breakdown in health lasting more than six months than you are to die before you are 65. This means that you may well need sickness and accident insurance more than you will need life insurance.
