When it comes to life insurance, police officers face unique risks due to the nature of their profession. As law enforcement professionals, they willingly put themselves in harm’s way to protect their communities. Given the unpredictable nature of their work, it is important for police officers to have appropriate life insurance coverage that provides financial security for them and their loved ones. In this article, we will explore some of the best life insurance for police officers options you may want to discuss with the team at Sports Financial Services.
Life Insurance for Police Officers
There are a number of options available for those who work in hazardous occupations and want to provide for their family, protect mortgage payments or bills should an accident happen whilst engaged in hazardous work activities.
Police work spans a number of different activities and each brings a different set of risks. Depending on the nature of the police work and the risks involved certain exclusions or restrictions may apply to certain types of financial protection for police officers. When you enquire your specialist adviser will discuss the cover options available to you based on your particular police work activities.
Each enquiry for life insurance for police officers is individual and our specialist team will discuss the risks involved in your lifestyle and police work activities.
Different providers of cover may ask additional questions relating to an enquiry for life insurance for police officers, examples of some of the questions they may ask are:
• What is your police role?
• What type of police activities do you participate in?
• Do you use any dangerous equipment, machinery or chemicals?
• How many hours are you engaged in outside work vs office-based hours?
Whatever your police role please feel free to contact us today to discuss your financial protection needs and the best options that are available to you.
Critical Illness Cover for Police Officers:
Critical illness cover is a way to cover specific illnesses or medical conditions that might disrupt your life, family and finances. Anyone who takes part in police work and enquires about critical illness cover will have their enquiry assessed against the activities they pursue. Cover for different types of police activities will be assessed differently.
Cover for some police activities may be offered at standard rates with no special terms imposed whilst participation in other police activities may result in premium loadings, special terms, restrictions or exclusions. Your occupations specialist at Sports Financial Services will talk you through the options available.
Income Protection for Police Officers:
Another important cover to consider is income protection, particularly if you take part in hazardous activities like police work. Income protection could provide you with peace of mind if you are unable to work due to injury or sickness.
If you have a loan, mortgage, credit cards, regular bills or family financial commitments then you may want to consider what would happen if you were unable to meet the payments because of a loss of income if you are unable to work.
Applications for income protection are dependent on many factors, for example, whether you have previously suffered any injuries as a result of your police activities and whether they have caused you to have a significant amount of time off work.
Again, like critical illness cover, participation in some police activities may result in premium loadings, restrictions or exclusions. When you make an enquiry your adviser at Sports Financial Services will discuss your needs and the options available to you.
