FEATURED POST

Being self-employed has many perks, but the ones that you miss out on when you work for yourself is sick pay and income protection in the event you are unable to work.

Many self-employed people choose to take out life insurance and critical illness cover in case they get too sick to work or pass away and want to ensure their family are financially secure.

In this guide I explain more about life insurance, the products  available and why it’s so crucial to secure protection for you and your family when you’re self-employed.
