Employee benefits from AIG: support for you and your family

Having protection insurance as an employee benefit gives you and your family support and peace of mind. AIG provides protection to over 600,000 employees in the UK, through our life insurance, critical illness and income protection cover.

On this page, we explain the protection each of the three products can give you. If you’re not sure which cover you have, talk to your employer. They’ll be able to tell you which type of insurance you have and how much you are covered for.

Group Life Insurance

Life insurance eases the financial pressures on your family at an extremely difficult time. Alongside financial support, we provide the services that families will value most, including a 24/7 bereavement helpline, specialist bereavement support for children through charity Winston’s Wish and a probate helpline for you and your family.

Group Income Protection

If you’re recuperating from an illness, the last thing you need to distract you is money worries. That’s where income protection can make a huge difference, providing up to 80% of your salary while you are unable to work.

Once you’re able to return to work, our rehabilitation programme will be there to provide you with a tailored back-to-work plan including support, guidance and funded treatments if needed.

Group Critical Illness

If you are diagnosed with a critical illness, you’ll want to focus on your health rather than worrying about your financial situation.

Critical illness insurance provides you with a lump sum should you suffer from any of the critical illnesses covered by the policy, such as cancer, a stroke or a heart attack.

You’re also protected if you undergo one of the serious medical procedures listed in the policy, like a major organ transplant. You can use the money in any way you choose and the benefit is paid tax-free.
