Unemployment Insurance

How far would you get on £95.85?

If you became too ill to work, you’d soon find out.

You might be surprised to find that Statutory Sick Pay is only £95.85 a week.

Enough to fill up the car maybe, but how far through the week would you get?

A little income protection could help keep your engine running.

  • Statutory Sick Pay is only £95.85 a week and is only paid for up to 28 weeks – although your employer may pay you more than this.
  • Employment and Support Allowance is just £74.35 a week – not nearly enough to cover the average household family spend of £586 a week.
  • And it increases to £113.55 a week from the fourteenth week – just less than a quarter of the average weekly outgoings.
