According to the Department of Work and Pensions as at February 2009, there were over 2 million incapacity claimants who were unable to work due to illness or injury. This is a staggering figure and you might think becoming incapacitated won't happen to you, but what if you did? How long could you afford to pay your mortgage or rental payments, household bills, children's school fees, mobile phone and satellite TV payments.
The benefit money you maybe entitled to from the Government may not be as much as you might expect. With severe pressure on Government finances and following the Government reform of the State Welfare system, benefit claimants now undergo a much stricter and comprehensive medical test to determine if they are eligible to receive any benefits due to incapacity.
Income Protection from Friends Life (formerly Friends Provident) can provide you with a regular income if you are off work because of illness or accidental injury during the cover term.
