So, does anyone know the details of the UK welfare system?
The son in law is self-employed in the building trade. Yesterday he broke his collarbone in three places playing football.
He\’s got a private insurance contract to cover long term unemployment/disability, the deductible of which is 60 days.
Medical advice is that he can\’t work for at least 6 weeks.
So what, if anything, can he expect to get from the social insurance system, otherwise known as the welfare state, which he has been paying into for the past 10 years?
The mortgage paid? Sickness benefit? What?
Or, being self-employed, is he screwed?
