WHAT IS GROUP INCOME PROTECTION?
Our Group Income Protection scheme provides a replacement income for sick and incapacitated employees. These schemes can help to alleviate money worries and help boost morale, as well as help employers to attract and retain talent within the business.
WHY SHOULD I PROVIDE GROUP INCOME PROTECTION TO MY EMPLOYEES?
Almost everybody has monthly outgoings, and if an employee’s income was to stop, they would often find themselves in financial trouble.
Group Income Protection will financially help your employees if they do find themselves unable to work.
By using Group Income Protection, you are helping both your business and employees as it combines a long-term income protection insurance with absence management and workplace support. Our approach to handling employee absences is built on the established premise that the earlier the intervention, the better the outcomes.
HOW DOES GROUP INCOME PROTECTION WORK?
The monthly benefit is paid when a life covered by the insurance becomes unable to do their job due to sickness or injury.
The policy is arranged on a ‘life of another’ basis meaning that it is owned by the company, and so when a claim is made, the benefit is paid directly to the business. Your business may then use the money to provide the employee with a replacement of any lost pay due to being off with sickness or injury.
The maximum benefits are calculated on up to 80% of the employee’s taxable income before incapacity and can also cover contributions to the insured person’s pension by the company and the employers National Insurance contributions.
