Family Income Benefit explained

Family Income Benefit would provide your child with a monthly benefit until they are considered to be financially self-sufficient, which in most cases is set between 21 and 23 years of age.

Although many parents start considering this form of protection for specific costs such as school fees, it is simply the most appropriate form of protection to ensure you children’s standard of living would be maintained until they are self-sufficient should the worst happen to you.

This includes protecting the cost of school fees but also the everyday costs such as food and clothing.

Family income benefit is a cost effective way of protecting your children as rather than paying a lump sum up front should the worst happen it pays an annual income.

First things first…

There is a higher chance of you being unable to work due to illness or injury than there is of you passing away.

If you are still working and particularly concerned about supporting your child, you may also want to consider Income Protection Insurance, which would provide you with a monthly income should you be unable to work due to sickness, accident or unemployment.

I had a short time to ensure I was covered appropriately due to change of circumstances and house move. I required a number of insurance policies for my new situation. I contacted Drewberry Insurance and found that they understood all of my needs and the best way to filter and sift appropriate insurers. They clearly understood the process...made everything very easy online and via telephone and always did as they said they would by actioning everything as and when requested. This took the time and confusion away from becoming insured. Their interaction and communication and explanation of all processes ensured I understood each stage of the process. Will recommend their services to anyone seeking insurance.
