PROTECT FINANCIAL

Financial Wellbeing

Protect Financial is a Financial Wellbeing Programme provided by you for your employees, the aim of the programme is to secure and improve their financial future.

12 Months Sick Pay

Our lead benefit is Enhanced Sick Pay to provide your employees with 100% of their net salary for up to 12 months of sickness for any reason covered by a doctor’s note. (See Terms & Conditions).

Cost Neutral for Employer

In terms of the cost, it is always funded by a 1.5% deduction from the employee’s gross salary as part of the payroll process. You can either give the employees an RPI linked pay increase to fund the cost of the program, or run this as an auto-enrolment program, in a similar way to how Pensions operate, and employees can choose to opt-out should they wish to. *Less than 3% of employees opt-out of the program.

Minimal Administration

Setup is a quick and fully automated process that connects with your payroll provider directly or via a basic CSV upload in a few short minutes. If you would like to learn more, schedule a call with one of our team or sign up online.

Protect Financial provides 100% of the employee’s salary entirely on your behalf should an employee be required to take a leave of absence for more than 30 days due to any extended period of sickness covered by a doctors note.

Protect Financial will ensure that employees receive 100% of their net salary, enabling you to hire a temporary replacement at no extra cost, keeping your business moving forwards and ensuring an employee on an extended period of sickness’ is financially supported in their time of need.

You don’t lose a key employeeYou will NEVER have to make the difficult decision; Do I pay my employee their full salary in their time of need or do I use their salary to bring in a temporary employee to fulfil their responsibilities?

No cost or Admin to youYou can choose to use the auto enrolment model meaning 1.5% is deducted from the employees monthly gross salary via your payroll platform (e.g Xero, Sage, etc) similar to how pensions operate, and this means no additional administration for you.

No commitment whatsoeverIf you run the auto-enrolment program (handled by us) and your team opt-out because they don’t see the value then neither you nor they have any obligations or costs at all.

B) IncludedProvide Enhanced Sick Pay to all employees as an inclusive program and you may decide to assist the employees’ contribution by an equivalent RPI pay increase.

 

If an employee is struck by an unexpected illness requiring them to take a leave of absence for more than 30 days, the employee logs into the Protect Member’s portal and submits an online enhanced sick pay application.

The Enhanced sick pay application is handled and validated entirely by the Protect Financial Platform and once approved, we will seek final approval from you and then pay your employee on your behalf and in your name.

The employee receives their tax free net salary*, supporting them in their difficult time whilst ensuring business continuity by enabling you to use the money you would normally pay them to bring in a temporary employee.
