Life assurance protection provides a lump sum that can be used to provide a source of income for your dependents in the event of your death. It can also be used to repay borrowings or to facilitate the purchase of part of a business in the event of the death of a part owner of the business.
Whatever its purpose it provides much needed funds to cater for the financial consequences of the death of the life assured.
Serious illness protection similarly provides a lump sum to provide for the financial consequences of the insured becoming seriously ill. Again the proceeds of such a policy can be invested to provide an income or else could be utilised to carry out modifications to a house to make it suitable for someone with a serious illness. It could also be invested to generate income to look after dependents or else used to repay borrowings.
Permanent health insurance provides an income for the policyholder in the event that they are no longer able to earn their income in the normal way. The benefit at 75% of income, is normally paid out up to normal retirement age and thus provides a much needed source of income in the event of illness until such time as pension income can be drawn. The benefit can be index linked to protect against the ravages of inflation. Benefit normally commences after a minimum of 13 weeks
