Group Income Protection
Long-term sick pay. A delayed return to work. And pressure on fellow team members. Serious illness or injury is seriously unhealthy for business. We won’t apologise for asking lots of questions to calculate your risk and find you uncompromising cover.
What is Group Income Protection?
Group Income Protection is an insurance policy that pays an employee’s salary if they can’t work due to illness or injury. You can extend cover to include / cover includes National Insurance contributions, pension contributions and the cost of finding and employing temporary or replacement staff. And you can include extra support for employees like physiotherapy or sessions with a mental health specialist.
“We’ll carry out an honest assessment of your risk and look at all the options. Because we’re independent, we can access the entire insurance market. So you risk less and pay less too.”
– Simon Claxton, Income Protection specialist at Macbeth
How Group Income Protection benefits your business
Group Income Protection gives you and your employees financial security. If an employee can’t work due to illness or injury, your income protection policy will pay their salary as long as they are under State Pension age. So your employee receives a full salary and associated contributions. And you don’t have to foot the bill.
And even though there is an official break in how the salary is normally paid, contributions to pensions and National Insurance are maintained.
