Reward…and risk

If you’re self-employed, you already know the benefits it can bring.  However, you must consider your personal insurance options carefully.  Along with the “ups” of being self-employed, there are considerable “downs”.  Or, there can be.

Commuter no more!

There comes a time in your life when working for yourself is by far and above the most appealing option in your working life.

With no boss, no long hours spent commuting, you’re answerable to yourself.  At last, you’re doing something you love.

Or, maybe you’ve never had a “proper job”.  You’ve always been your own boss. There’s a “but”.  There’s always a “but”.  And it’s this:

Things can change.

Why you may need self-employment protection from Black Lion Insurance.  Understand your financial risks.

There’s no sick pay, no holiday pay, no health insurance – the list of things you don’t get is pretty long.

Basically, what would happen if you broke an arm or a leg in a car accident? Or, we know it’s a cliché, run over by a bus?  It happens, you know.  Sudden, critical illnesses also happen. What’s worse, the safety net that was your employment package is no longer there.

Do you have enough money put away to cover your mortgage, bills and all those other important financial commitments?

Should you be unable to work, it will be good to know that you took advice from Black Lion Insurance.

What our clients are saying

Black Lion insurance were great in helping me get through the countless jargon and pitfalls when it comes to setting up insurance. I was thankfully recommended to them by a colleague and they made the process seamless ensuring I have the most appropriate policy for me.

I’m an IT contractor and I wasn’t sure if I was eligible for this cover, however, to my delight, not only could I have the cover, but I could pay it through my Ltd company. I was covered within an hour of getting in contact. Very prompt and informative service!

Polite and very clear when explaining my product of interest. Happy to answer any questions and recap on areas that I wanted to ensure I understood clearly before committing. Didn’t feel pressured or rushed at any point and the chap was very pleasant.
