An important part of being a grown up is being responsible for the financial security of your whole family - which includes paying mortgages, bills and insurance policies. When we buy a car we take out motor insurance to protect us in case things go wrong, when we buy a house we take out building and contents insurance to cover any accidental damage. Then there's also life insurance and critical illness cover to consider. All these policies give us adults peace of mind in case something happens to us or the things around us.
But what happens if it's not you that gets poorly, but your child? It's not something we like to think about but in those circumstances, if you need to take time off work, who will pay your bills?
Insure With Max have created a new type of insurance for working parents, that will pay you your take home salary for 12 months, should you need to take unpaid leave from work to look after your child. Take a look at this video for more information on how the policy works:
ChildMax is available for working UK parents and covers 12 illnesses and 7 medical conditions. It is affordable - policies start at £49.50 for twelve months - and flexible, with annual reviews and the ability to return to work part time if necessary.
It is underwritten by Ironshore Europe Limited via its London branch. Ironshore Europe Limited is authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland and subject to limited regulation by the Financial Conduct Authority. It is distributed by InsureWithMax.com, which is operated by Questor Insurance Services Limited who are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
