Life Insurance for steeplejacks who work below 40 feet can often be sourced at standard terms. Where your work regularly requires you to be above 40 feet you will need to choose the right insurance company to place your cover to or you will face significant price increases. There are some insurers who will consider offering steeplejacks Life Insurance at standard terms regardless of the heights worked at as they are aware of the significant advances that have been made with safety equipment.
Critical Illness Insurance for steeplejacks may be available at standard terms for those who work above 40 feet, if you place your application with the correct insurer for your circumstances. It is likely that a part of the policy known as Total Permanent Disability will be excluded from the policies claim set. This is a small part of the policy and should not deter you from applying for Critical Illness Cover where you can be covered for well over 45 conditions or more. For people working over 40 feet standard rates may still be available but with a limited number of providers.
Steeplejacks Income Protection policies can be available with a few insurance providers depending upon the heights that you regularly work at. It is important that any Income Protection policy that you apply is made on an own occupation definition for the policy. This will mean that at the point of claim you are assessed on your ability to work as a steeplejack, rather than your ability to perform any like job or any job at all; claims are then much harder to insure. Our financial advisers can ensure that your application is placed with the correct insurer to enhance your chances of being offered an own occupation policy.
Income Protection for steeplejacks will be written with a deferment period of 1 day, 1 week, 4 weeks, 8 weeks, 13 weeks, 26 weeks or 52 weeks. This figure is the amount of time that you must wait from becoming unable to work, to receiving the benefit payout. When you apply for your Income Protection policy you should consider any employment benefits, savings and budget that you have which could affect your choice of deferment period. Our financial advisers regularly help clients to determine which deferment period best suits their individual circumstances and we are happy to discuss the benefits of different options with you.

Steeplejacks conduct maintenance on building structures at heights that are typically difficult to reach. A steeplejack will either work on scaffolding or by abseiling down a structure to survey, maintain and repair the building. The use of a belay rope fall-arrest system can reduce the danger that is present when working at such heights. A steeplejack will perform masonry work as well as other aspects of building repair such as carpentry, painting and sandblasting.
