We can easily add maternity leave cover to your staff absence insurance policy. Unlike some providers we can offer you more than one option and so help you to select protection that is appropriate for your budget.
The cost of arranging cover for staff who take maternity leave can be a concern for schools. Generally maternity cover is not offered as a single product but rather as part of staff absence insurance. Any school can buy maternity cover as part of their policy so long as they are not participating in a Local Authority Maternity Scheme.
We can easily add maternity leave to your staff absence insurance policy. Unlike some providers we can offer you more than one option and so help you to select protection that is appropriate for your budget. It is also possible to arrange cover for adoption leave and paternity leave. No excess is applied to these benefits.
Most of the options that we offer will pay you regardless of whether a staff member returns to work at the end of leave or not. We believe this should be clear from the outset so that you can plan your budget and be guaranteed a payment if that best meets your needs.
Not as costly as you might think
For the average teacher on a £29,829 salary, there is only £4,283 worth of cost. Compared to a teacher who is absent with stress for a full year, the cost could easily reach more than £20,000. Although not as costly as you might think maternity leave can still have a big impact on your budget, insurance can help ease the financial worry and you can prepare your budget knowing you are guaranteed payment should you need to make a claim.
