Congratulations on taking out Income Protection Cover – you are a member of a small and privileged group of people. Recently published statistics state that: 2 million people of working age in the UK have currently been off work due to illness for 6 months or more The shortfall amongst the public between what they need in the way of Income Protection, and what the public actually have, is £130 billion. If you know of friends or colleagues who don’t have Income Protection, do them a favour – tell them about the D&G.
