Critical Illness Cover for Construction Workers:
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 construction work and enquires about critical illness cover will have their enquiry assessed against the activities they pursue. Cover for different types of construction activities will be assessed differently.
Cover for some construction activities may be offered at standard rates with no special terms imposed whilst participation in other construction 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 to you.
Income Protection for Construction Workers:
Another important cover to consider is income protection, particularly if you take part in hazardous activities like construction 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 construction worker activities and whether they have caused you to have a significant amount of time off work.
