What Would You Do?

We all insure our cars, pets, and even our smartphones, yet we tend to have inadequate protection when it comes to ourselves and the people we love. The statistics show us that one in two people will get cancer in their lifetime. This shows why it is always a good time to take a look at your insurance policies and the protection you have in place.

It Won't Happen To Me

Every day we hear about someone being involved in a serious accident or losing their job. Of course, no one likes to think about these circumstances and some of us have the “it won’t happen to me” mentality. However, you never know what is around the corner, and if you are left in a position whereby you cannot pay your mortgage, it can be extremely stressful and scary. This is why having the right insurance protection is imperative so that you can fund your mortgage while also having enough money to cover everyday expenses and protect your family’s lifestyle should something unexpected happen.

Protection Polices Available Through Think Plutus

Life Insurance

You'll be covered against: Death or terminal illness

Benefit paid: Lump sum

With life insurance, your dependents will be provided with a tax-free lump sum in the event of your death. Life insurance is sometimes known as term insurance, and cover can be arranged in either of the following ways:

Level Term Assurance: This is a policy type in which the amount of cover, known as the 'sum assured', remains consistent throughout the total length of the policy. It is often taken out in order to pay off a mortgage, and is a good fit for interest-only mortgages, in which the amount owed doesn't gradually decrease.

Decreasing Term Assurance: This policy also assures a lump sum is paid out if you die, but the amount of money that pays out will decrease over time. This type of policy is best suited to repayment mortgages, so that the amount paid out remains at a similar level to the mortgage payments. These premiums are usually cheaper than for level term assurance, since the amount of cover decreases over the policy length.

Critical Illness Insurance

You'll be covered against: Critical illness

Benefit paid: Lump sum

Critical illness insurance exists to provide a tax-free cash sum in the event of you being diagnosed with one of a predetermined list of defined critical illnesses. You are free to use the cash sum as you like, but its intended purpose is to relieve the financial burden on you as you enter a difficult period of your life. Critical illness, as with life insurance, can be taken out as a fixed lump sum or in line with your mortgage payments.

Additional benefit options: Free critical illness cover for your children.

Family Income Benefit

You'll be covered against: Death or critical/terminal illness

Type of benefit paid: Regular income

Family Income Benefit will be paid out in the event of your death, but it differs from life insurance in that it pays regular, tax-free income instead of a one-off lump sum. This continues until the policy term ends. It is a good fit for people who would prefer their dependents to have a regular income, rather than making them manage a single lump sum.

Income Protection

You'll be covered against: Illness or injury

Type of benefit paid: Regular income

If you are in an accident or fall ill, income protection insurance can provide a regular income to decrease the impact of lost salary. You decide how many months pass before the policy begins paying out (the deferment period), and also how long it will continue paying out for (the benefit period). You can make it pay out until you are either well enough to go back to work, reach your retirement age, or reach the end of the policy term. This insurance gives you peace of mind via a regular, ongoing income to be able to keep up with bills and other expenses in the event that you fall ill or have an accident that renders you unable to work.
