The growing unease about the economic fallout of COVID-19 has led to many people reviewing their finances and considering their options if they were suddenly unable to work.
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that life can change in a blink of an eye and being out of work, whether due to redundancy or illness, can rapidly make us feel powerless.
However, having the right cover in place can help us feel in control again. And with the Bank of England warning that there could be 2.5 million people out of work by the end of 2020 as the furlough scheme ends, taking out income protection could be well worth it.
The importance of protection
Income protection can provide important cover if you are unable to work for a while. Yet although increasing numbers are likely to take out this type of cover due to the pandemic, there are warnings that insurers must not be opportunistic and must instead find the right tone and approach, as well as offer reassurance.
Policies are likely to evolve in a post-coronavirus world, with some insurers already adding COVID-19 exclusions.
