It's worth looking into, as some cover is better than none at all.

You are probably familiar with protecting your car, property & home contents with insurance, but what about protecting your greatest asset - YOU?

Life insurance policies, for example, can provide you with cover from just a few pounds a month. It’s well worth weighing up the cost against the potential benefits, including peace of mind and financial security for you and your family.

It's not nice to think about what would happen if you found yourself unable to work because of illness or injury. Getting your finances into good shape and boosting your financial readiness is a great way of dispelling some of these worries. There are various State benefits that may help, but most are limited, don’t start immediately and usually only last for a fixed period of time.


You may have plans in place already, but are they sufficient and how long will they last? Unless you would have enough cash and investments on hand to clear any debt and provide for yourself and your family, whatever happens, then a protection plan or insurance policy should be considered.

It’s tempting to think that you’ll never need insurance, but unfortunately no one is immune to things going wrong.

  • According to Mind one in four people in the UK will suffer from a mental health problem this year.

  • The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has revealed that close to 1m workers in the UK unexpectedly find themselves unable to work because of injury or illness.

  • Studies by Cancer Research UK have shown that one in two people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with a form of cancer during their lifetime.


These figures can give you an idea of how important it is to make sure you and your family have a financial safety net in place should something happen to you.
