You are 3 times more likely to go on long-term sick leave than you are to die during your working life.

Despite this many of us get life insurance to protect our families financially against death, only 10% of us have Income Protection to protect ourselves: the one insurance that will continue to provide a percentage of your salary if you go on long-term sick leave.1 in 5 of us are likely to go on long term sick leave during our working lives, however, the chances of recovery are now much better, with increasing numbers of people returning to work.
