If you want to make sure that unemployment insurance works for you then you have to ensure that you read what is there in the small print set out in the policy. The small print is where you will find the exclusions and these are what could stop you from claiming on an unemployment insurance policy.
When unemployment insurance does work correctly it will give you peace of mind that if you should suddenly find yourself out of work due to unemployment through involuntary redundancy then you would still have a sum of money each month to pay your essential outgoings. This could mean the difference between you being stress free and worrying about where you are going to find the money to pay your bills and essential outgoings such as your monthly mortgage or loan repayments.
A good unemployment insurance policy would start to pay out once you have been out of work usually for 30 days or more and would continue to provide you with a fixed income which is tax free each and every month for up to 12 months (and with some other providers, for up to 24 months).
You do however have to make sure that an unemployment policy would be suitable for your circumstances as it isn’t a suitable product for all individuals. Some of the most common reasons which stop people from being eligible to claim on a policy include not being in full time employment, being retired, suffering from a pre-existing illness.
When you have determined that an unemployment insurance policy would suit your circumstances then shop around among the standalone providers as they are normally much cheaper than their high street counterparts and let them secure the best premiums on an unemployment insurance policy for you to enable you to have peace of mind for the future.
