What Is Redundancy Cover?

Redundancy cover, also known as redundancy insurance or unemployment insurance, is a type of income protection that pays out to you if you happen to lose your job. People take out redundancy cover in order to protect essential things in their life such as mortgage repayments and living costs.

In today’s world of work, no job is for life nor is it completely secure, unfortunately. Redundancy cover and other forms of income protection protect you if you work more than 16 hours a week and are unable to save as thoroughly as you like.

How Does Redundancy Cover Work?

People who have income protection such as redundancy cover are paid through a tax-free monthly income after they have been made redundant. This starts after a predetermined waiting period. One important thing to remember about how redundancy cover works is that it cannot be applied for if you know redundancy is about to happen. Redundancy cover works on a ‘What if’ basis.
