1. Who needs unemployment protection insurance?
Source: National Statistics Online, 2005
2. How will this type of insurance help me?
3. Who is eligible for cover under this type of insurance?
You can apply for this insurance if you:
4. Can I have joint cover with my partner?
Yes. You can apply for cover:
5. When would I receive the first benefit payment?
You will need to be continuously unemployed or unable to work due to illness or disability for your selected deferral period before you are able to make a claim under this type of insurance. Thereafter payments will continue monthly in arrears until the earliest of the following events:
6. What is a deferral period?
This is the amount of time between being off work through accident, sickness or redundancy, to the start of a claim. A 30-day deferral period means the claim starts to accrue 30 days after the insurable incident occurs. Some companies retain the right to impose up to a 180-day exclusion at their discretion.
7. What is the maximum cover I can have?
The amount of cover you select is known as the monthly benefit. The maximum monthly benefit generally available per applicant under this type of insurance is £1,500 of income protection cover up to a combined total of 50% of gross monthly income*, whichever is the lower.
*Gross monthly income means monthly salary plus the average of any overtime, commission and/or bonus payments received in the 12 months prior to the insurance start date.
8. If I claim do I still continue to pay my premiums?
Yes, it is very important that you continue to pay all premiums when they are due. Insurers refund your monthly premium when we pay your claim. If you select a monthly benefit of £300 per month and the premium you pay is £14.25, on a claim they would pay you a monthly benefits total of £314.25.
9. What is the cost of cover?
The cost of cover is expressed as a rate per £100 of monthly benefit and includes insurance premium tax.
10. What do you mean by a high risk occupation?
We consider certain types of employers to be "high risk". These are companies whose line of business is in certain areas.
These currently are:
Banking, IT, telecommunications, media, airlines airports and travel, recruitment and certain elements of financial services We do not consider the occupation to be high risk, only the employer's line of business. If you are an IT professional working for a non IT based company, e.g. a clothes manufacturer, the you would be considered at standard rates.
11. What is meant by separate period of claim?
Monthly benefit ceases once 12 months benefit has been paid. For unemployment claims and disability claims, where the same accident or sickness has recurred, then once the maximum 12 (twelve) payments of monthly benefit have been made, you will qualify for subsequent claims following a period of 6 (six) months' continuous employment. For disability claims where a different accident or sickness occurs, once the maximum 12 (twelve) payments of monthly benefit have been made, you will qualify for subsequent claims following a period of 1 (one) month's continuous employment. Two claim periods separated by three months or less will be treated as one continuous claim. Where a claim changes from a disability claim to an unemployment claim, or vice versa, claim payments will continue without interruption, subject only to approval of the second claim and the maximum of 12 (twelve) payments of monthly unemployment benefit in total over both claims.
12. How do I make a claim?
If you need to make a claim, it is very important that you contact the insurers sooner, rather than later. Once contacted,they will forward you all forms that need to be completed by you and your employer. Only once all forms are returned, fully completed can the insurers action your claim.
A full copy of the selected insurers key facts documents, policy terms and conditions, which includes how to claim, is in the majority of cases available on-line, or alternatively on request by e-mailing, writing to, or phoning us.
