We work with football players of all levels from young pros to world stars, tailoring cost-effective personal accident and illness insurance that provides long-term financial protection.
Career-Ending Insurance Cover
Whilst the risk of injury and illness may be unavoidable, its financial impact can be significantly mitigated given proper planning and the correct cover.
Triggered by a career-ending injury or illness, Maksure’s innovative policy pays a defined lump sum benefit. The benefit is agreed at inception and usually based on the value and length of a player’s contract.
Additional benefits include:
Club and international matches – Coverage protects players anywhere globally, including when away on international duty, on and off the pitch.
Minimal medical exclusions – We ensure minimal medical exclusions are applied to our clients’ policies.
24-month claim notification period – A policy can respond at any point within 24 months of an injury occurring or when an illness manifested itself.
Retraining fund – Up to R500,000 contribution made towards a player’s vocational education training expenses for another occupation.
Why is Maksure’s Footballer’s PA cover important:
A footballer’s contract determines how long their club is obliged to pay their salary after they sustain a serious or career-ending injury. This timeframe is governed by a country’s legislation, which varies from one country to another.
If the worst happens to a Premier League or Football League player, their club can terminate their contract and, in some cases, stop paying their salary after six months. Having a personal accident policy can, therefore, safeguard a player’s financial future should the unthinkable happen.
