Don't Underestimate Illness Protection

October 9th, 2015

Half of all workers think the risk of being unable to work though illness is less than one in ten, says the Independent. In fact the risk is a lot higher, and every year 300,000 people go from work to welfare as a result of illness. There are several types of insurance that can be used alone or in combination to provide cover for a family, but experts and insurers agree that this is something the general public knows almost nothing about.

Income protection is especially important for the self-employed and business owners.
