Specialist provider of lifestyle insurance and income payment protection insurance products, iProtectinsurance.com have today not only assured their existing customers that they are covered for swine flu and it’s after effects, but have also issued a rallying cry to those worried about whether they are covered or not, to switch any ASU policy today at no cost and with no exclusion penalties – you might even save a lot of money!
Spokesman for the company Dennis Haggerty said
“At iprotect we have always refused to sell Unemployment insurance without it being combined with Accident and Sickness cover as well. This is because our statistics show some of the most expensive and long running claims are for sickness. It is really the only way to be fair to customers to ensure they are covered in of work for any form of involuntary unemployment, not just redundancy.
Despite the recession and the huge increase in unemployment, still some 40% of the claims we receive are for Accident and Sickness related absence from work. Some of our past claimants have been so unwell they could not work for close to a year. The Swine Flue outbreak is a reminder to us all why it is important to have Accident Sickness and Unemployment cover, Further, if people become infected and potentially seriously debilitated by damage to their lungs and internal organs, quite possibly they could be many months off of work.
Modern medical science may avoid deaths in the UK, but if the strain mutates and prevents its victims returning to work, it is some comfort to know that at least the bills will be paid and benefits paid under their iprotect policy prevent their family finances spiraling out of control.”
