ElectriciansMany insurance providers will provide life insurance for electricians at normal rates.

As you will well know working with electricity can be dangerous, but insurers are very conscious that there are a lot of safety measures that you follow, which means that they usually view your work as low risk for life insurance.

When you speak with our advisers we will be asking you:

  • Do you ever work at heights of more than 40 feet?
  • Are you based offshore?
  • Do you ever work outside of the UK?

If you work at heights of 40ft or more on a frequent basis, then some insurers may increase the monthly premiums for your life insurance. This is known as non-standard terms.

Our advisers are here to help you find the right insurer to match your circumstances, to get you the best terms possible.

If you are an offshore electrician you will need to let us know so that we can research this for you. You will find our offshore workers page useful.

Critical illness cover pays out a cash lump sum of money, if you are diagnosed with a medical condition that is listed in the insurer’s claims set e.g. cancer, heart attack, stroke.

Critical illness cover for electricians is also regularly accepted at standard terms with many insurers. Again, the insurance provider will want to know if you frequently work at heights or are an offshore electrician.

Income protection pays you a replacement of your monthly income, if you are unable to work due to ill health.

Income protection insurance for electricians is available with many insurers, but an own occupation definition on the policy is only available with a select few.

Ideally you want to ensure that your policy has own occupation definition so that any claim that you make is based upon your ability to carry out your job as an electrician.

Other acceptance terms that are available will base a claim upon your ability to perform a similar occupation, or any occupation at all, making the claims process slightly more difficult.

Electricians income protection will come with deferment of 1 day, 1 week, 4 weeks, 8 weeks, 13 weeks, 26 weeks and 52 weeks before a successful claim is paid.

Our insurance advisers will be able to help you determine which deferment period suits your needs based upon employment benefits, savings you have and the price of the policies that are available.
