Critical Illness Cover

Critical Illness Cover for blacksmiths will also generally be available at standard terms with most insurance providers. Insurers do not typically see your activities as a blacksmith as having a significant potential to cause a serious medical condition. This means that they are more likely to be concerned with your medical history, intended foreign travel and leisure pursuits than your occupations.

Income Protection

Income Protection for blacksmiths can be available at normal terms with certain insurance providers. When your application is being placed you should try and secure an 'own occupation' definition of cover. This will mean that any Income Protection claim that you place will be based upon your ability to work as a blacksmith, rather than any suited occupation or any job at all. Our insurance advisers can help you to place your Income Protection application with the correct insurer for your circumstances to secure you the best policy terms possible.

Income Protection policies come with deferment periods of 1 day, 1 week, 4 weeks, 8 weeks, 13 weeks, 26 weeks or 52 weeks. When placing your cover you should consider any employment benefits that you receive as a blacksmith, savings in place and the budget that you have available for cover. The shorter the deferment period that you choose the quicker you will receive the policy payout from a successful claim. Our financial advisers can help you to determine the best policy options for your needs, so please feel free to call us and use our advice.

Summary definition

Blacksmiths are largely employed within the private sector as metalworkers for the the manufacturing industry (submarines, ships, rigs) or as private trades in an artistic sense creating more unique products (sculptures). The exposure to a high manual workload, heavy lifting, and being located near high temperature equipment can make the job have a higher element of risk involved.
