Group Income Protection
Our group income protection solution provides an invaluable replacement income for employees who are sick or injured and unable to work.
It also offers support and assistance to employers in many ways. For example day zero, early interventions and rehabilitation can be used to help manage and reduce both long term and short term absence as well as presenteeism. This not only helps companies improve productivity, recruitment and retention but also helps control the cost and incidence of insurance claims.
An extensive range of free, added-value, wellbeing services is available to all UK employees of our GIP clients – whether insured under the policy or not – along with their eligible dependants*. These include: an Employee Assistance Programme, the new Eldercare Support Service and Best Doctors.
Services to support managers – and corporate wellbeing strategy – are also included as standard, such as day zero and early interventions, potential for wellbeing investment matching, claims management and rehabilitation, plus an employee communications toolkit to help ensure the best possibl take-up of services.
