DINOs in danger of financial shocks

DINOs in danger of financial shocks

Households are no longer typically made up of a sole breadwinner who is relied upon for the family’s income. Instead, it is now more common to rely on the income of two, with the cost of living increasing and housing as unaffordable as it has ever been.

But these 3.2 million couples, otherwise known as “double income, no option”, or DINOs, are just as vulnerable to financial shocks. If either one of them lost their income with no cover in place, they could be open to financial ruin, let alone a big change in lifestyle to compensate.

A recent study has found that these couples are generally not as protected as they need to be. A lack of savings, complacency, and the prioritisation of other financial costs, has put more and more couples in a vulnerable position. 

However action can be taken to prepare for this eventuality by considering your income protection and critical illness needs, Call us today on 0800 024 8685 to check your options.
