OPTIONS FOR ACCIDENT AND SICKNESS COVER

When it comes to income protection, the variety of options you select influences the overall cost. Different insurers apply varying weights to these options. Hence, it’s crucial to define your needs and preferences to identify the most suitable Accident and Sickness policy available in the market.

DEFERRED PERIOD

This refers to the duration, in weeks or months, during which you can rely on your savings or company sick pay before initiating the income from the insurer. Opting for a longer period tends to lower the overall cost.

 

PAYMENT PERIOD

The payment period can be typically 12 or 24 months, or for extended policies, it can extend up to your chosen retirement age. Shorter periods generally result in lower costs.

 

LEVEL OR INDEXED BENEFIT

‘Level’ entails a fixed amount of payout throughout the insurance term, irrespective of changes in your income or expenditures. Conversely, the indexed option allows for an annual increase in line with inflation, using indices like the retail price index or consumer price index. Some insurers may offer the choice to decline this increase on an annual basis.

 

GUARANTEED PREMIUMS

If premiums are guaranteed, your payments remain constant throughout the policy term unless you choose to increase the desired income amount. Some policies adhere to this, ensuring consistent monthly payments. Others follow a guaranteed rate table, where the price per £1 is guaranteed to rise each year, calculable through the provided rate table.

 

AGE COSTED GUARANTEED PREMIUMS

These can also be known as Escalating Premiums as the monthly cost will increase each year as you age. These increases are more significant between the ages of 50-60 due to the risk of your health deteriorating being much larger.

 

REVIEWABLE PREMIUMS

Non-guaranteed premiums may fluctuate annually based on age or changes in health. While reviewable policies often begin with lower initial costs, they could potentially become more expensive over time.

 

WAIVER OF PREMIUM

Choosing Waiver of Premium means that once you start receiving income from the insurance policy, premiums are no longer required until you return to work or reach your selected payout period.

 

BACK TO WORK BENEFIT

This option allows you to receive a percentage of your income if, upon returning to work, the illness or injury you claimed for limits your duties and results in lower earnings. Some insurers may even provide a top-up if you transition to a different occupation with a lower income.
