The new research by Scottish Widows surveyed 5000 people in the UK and found that only 5% had income protection policy which provides cover in the event of somebody losing their job. This was despite half of workers claiming they would only be able to remain financially secure for up to 6 months.

Almost two thirds (63%) did not have life insurance, while 89% had no critical illness cover.

A spokesperson for said:
