How to protect your staff and your business

Group Income Protection provides an income to an employee if they are unable to work because of illness or injury. This reduces the financial worry of long-term sickness and absenteeism for both your business and your employee.

As well as being an attractive addition to any employee benefits package (helping attract and retain talent), it also helps employers keep the business running smoothly. What’s more, employees get the financial, medical and emotional support they need to get better and return to the workplace.

If an employee is off work through illness or injury, group income protection pays part of their salary. It gives employees and employers the reassurance they need – when they need it.
