Do you have a financial safety net?

10th September, 2018

Do you have a financial safety net?

A new report from insurance provider Aegon has revealed that over 35 million people in the UK have no sort of financial safety net in place.

Despite financial resilience being essential when dealing with loss of employment or long term absence from work, the report showed that as many as 45% of people would be forced to rely on savings, should a worst case scenario occur.

But Aegon has also highlighted that 36% had no savings in place whatsoever, with many more without an adequate financial buffer. The provider found that in total three-quarters of the UK population are financially vulnerable and are exposing themselves to risk.

The provider suggests there is currently a lack of awareness around the need for financial plans such as income protection and critical illness policies. When asked why they had no form of protection, many cited cost, necessity, and knowledge as reasons for choosing not to prioritise cover.
