Would you be financially prepared if the worst were to happen?

Sometimes life throws the unthinkable at us.

When you’re fit and healthy, you don’t worry about not being able to work and pay the bills. But getting a serious illness could change that very quickly. And it can happen to anyone, at any time.

However, most people appear to be burying their heads in the sand when it comes to having a financial backup plan should serious illness strike. Critical illness cover is designed to provide you with a tax-free one-off lump sum on diagnosis of a specified serious illness**. This can help pay for your mortgage, rent, debts, or alterations to your home, such as wheelchair access, should you need it.

According to recent research from Scottish Widows, 93% of the UK’s self-employed workforce have no critical illness cover.

If you were to become seriously ill, what impact do you think this would have on you and your family? And what would your priorities be? For most of us our biggest concern would be surviving the illness and recovering from it. But it can be difficult to focus 100% on getting better if you’re worried about the next big bill that’s going to come through the door.

No one wants to think about the unexpected happening, but having financial backup will help to provide you with peace of mind should it occur. That’s why we’ve partnered with Foster Denovo, a multi-award winning firm of financial advisers, who specialise in providing protection for contractors like you.
