PROTECTING YOUR INCOME

Group Income Protection

Your employees are your greatest asset. Our Group Income Replacement Insurance enables you as an employer to continue to pay a proportion of your employee's earnings if they are unable to work due to illness or injury.

Group Income Replacement Insurance is designed to help employers manage long term sickness absence more effectively. It is also a valuable benefit to attract and retain employees, which is becoming increasingly important.

By providing a continued income for employees who are unable to work as a result of illness or injury, employers assist in the financial support of their employees at an emotionally and financially stressful time.

You have two options:


Employer Option

  • Can help you meet your legal and financial obligations and your own sickness scheme financial liability
  • In most circumstances Group Income Replacement premiums count as a business expense for tax purposes
  • Offering a range of employee benefits, including Group Income Replacement, can attract and improve retention in employees
  • Absences can be more effectively managed

Employee Option

As a caring employer you might want to make the benefits of Group Income Replacement available to your employees…though, at this point in time, you might not have the funds to pay for that benefit from the business.

There is another option – the Group Personal Income Replacement Plan.

You as the employer establish a plan for your employees, on a Group insurance pricing basis, but with the employee deciding to take out the plan themselves and directly funding it.

The plan is straightforward to both understand and apply for. There are a limited number of options and the process is either run from your own website/intranet or via Wiltshire Friendly’s website.
