Irish Examiner: Making Cents: Planning for your financial future


New research by Aviva shows 40% of us do not have a back-up plan to fund if we were to fall ill. This is despite the fact we know it happens – 60% of Irish workers know someone that has been out of work on sick leave for more than four weeks at some stage in their working life.  According to Karen Gallagher of Aviva, “The feedback from this survey is quite enlightening, as well as worrying, when it comes to understanding public perception of what people would fall back on financially if they were unable to work for an extended period.”
