  • You haven’t been told by your employer, face-to-face, over the phone or in writing, that you may lose your job or your employer hasn’t formally announced a reorganisation, restructure or programme of redundancy that affects your role.

Your type of employment may affect how this cover applies to you and your circumstances. To get a better understanding of how this works, please choose your type of employment from the list below.

Employed

Self-employed

Contract worker

Please Note: If you're employed or a contract worker, we don't cover ‘zero hour’ contracts, for example if your employer doesn't have to provide you with any minimum working hours, and you're not obliged to accept any of the hours offered. We can’t provide cover if you're a casual or temporary worker, or if you're contracted to an employment agency.

Important information

It’s important that you give us accurate information when you apply for this policy. If you give us incorrect information, you may not be covered and we may not be able to pay a claim. You must continue to meet the requirements listed in the first two bullet points above for this policy to stay in force and for us to pay a claim.
