ASU – Accident, Sickness & Unemployment Cover, pays a monthly income if you’re unable to work owing to being signed off sick or made redundant. Claims are usually paid for a maximum of 12 months, or until you return to work.
Most of us know somebody who’s been signed off sick for a few months or made redundant at some point over the past few years – and no sector has been spared the squeeze, even the once safe jobs in part of the public sector have come under threat.
If you were signed off sick or made redundant could you pay your mortgage or rent, utility bills, food shopping, petrol? And what might you have to give up – the car? A social life?
“Surely I can rely on state benefits to tide me over?”
Think again – the current benefits system is highly complicated and whether you’re unable to work through sickness, or looking for work after being made redundant, the maximum you can expect to receive is just over £100 per week*.
