For self-employed, working Dads, keeping up with monthly payments for mortgages, bills and everything in-between isn't easy. But, how hard would things be for your family if you were to unexpectedly pass away?

Now, Dads in the UK can get protection of up to £200,000 for their family, should the worst happen to them, by paying just a few pounds per week.

For many Dads, it's a case of swapping 1 pint of beer per week in return of guaranteed financial stability for their family, no matter what.

  Financial experts are encouraging self-employed dads to put protection in place.

  More self-employed Dads are making the decision to protect their families.

If you don’t have cover, your loved ones could be forced to sell your home if they cannot afford the mortgage repayments should you pass away unexpectedly.

Given that mortgage debt and unsecured debt, such as credit cards, currently averages £57,830 per person in the UK, many families would be in great financial difficulty should either parent die.

This has come as a surprise to many financial experts, who can’t understand why so few people are financially protecting their families through insurance, yet are working 40-hour weeks to get through the month.
