Default wage cover when ill ?

after 20yrs working for someone else I'm moving into self employment

the only thing worrying me really is if I fall ill/break a leg etc etc that the money would effectively stop

does anyone who is self employed take out an illness policy to act like the employed sick pay does, or is it too expensive each month to be worth it ??

any advice would be cool

little bit complicated to write on a forum but check out exeter friendly society ,pay in get it back plus interest when you retire or need it ,i have been self employed for over 30 years and have had a policy for all that time looking at a big sum come 65.Any friendly society is probably the same no share holders getting their cut because all members are shareholders and profits are shared among all

Have a look here. I'm self employed and I didn't know about this, so you've done us both a favour

I use CICA, they're cheap enough and pay out from day 1. I've had a few claims for sport injuries and they pay out with no drama...and premiums don't go up.
