Are you considering a career change? Perhaps you’re setting up your own business, or becoming a contractor after years of employment. Good for you! Life is too short to settle for anything less than your dream. But sometimes making the move from a predictable monthly income with sick pay and paid holiday can be daunting.
Perhaps you’ve been offered a great opportunity and you’re choosing to move to a new company. How does the benefits package compare? Large corporations often include a form of life insurance as standard, but if you’re going to a smaller firm it’s possible that you might need to take care of this yourself.
Will you have a probationary period in your new role? It’s also worth considering that many corporate benefits don’t apply until you’ve been with a company for 3 – 6 months. What if you were to fall ill during this time? Could you afford to pay your household bills and living expenses? If not, you may find income protection and critical illness cover give you the peace of mind you need.
A change of career is exciting, but it’s important to protect your home and your family, just in case things don’t go according to plan. If you’d like to talk about the various options available to you, to ensure you’re prepared, please get in touch.
Melanie, Director of The Money Guardian says:
“My role is to help my clients’ financial situation, both now and in the future. I do this by giving relevant and personal advice on mortgages, and offering protection for my clients and their families with the right insurances for them.
For times when a client needs support of a different kind, to help them move forward in their lives and plan for the future, I can recommend a good coach or a programme that will give them the right support for their circumstances. Please don’t be afraid to get in touch if the solutions you need are not purely financial”.

“As a self-employed painter and decorator, I was concerned, if I had an illness or injury and was unable to work, how this would affect me financially. Melanie was able to recommend suitable options including income protection and critical illness cover, explaining everything I needed to know. Melanie was helpful and friendly throughout the process and I would recommend her to anyone”.Ben, Painter & Decorator, Reading
