As we all know, playing rugby whether at an amateur, semi-professional or professional status and due to the very nature of the sport, the risk of injury will increase along with the possibility of being unable to work because of the injury.

Wiltshire Friendly have been working with professional rugby since 2011 and have built an understanding of the sport that enables them to unsure players’ at all three levels. Whether you are a professional, semi-professional or amateur rugby player, Wiltshire Friendly will find an income protection plan to suit your requirements.

The Income Protection plans are an insurance policy which is designed specifically to replace a proportion of income lost when a player is unable to follow their occupation(s) due to illness or injury. Some players will have a “day job” alongside their rugby career and the income protection policies are designed to take this into consideration and help to protect rugby players against financial hardship if they are unable to work.

If you have not heard of the Wiltshire Friendly Society, it was founded in 1887 to provide income replacement insurance to working men and women, under the Holloway system.  The system was first described by George Holloway of Stroud who was a clothing manufacturer, social reforming justice of the peace and latterly the Member of Parliament for the town.
