All about the AOV insurance

An AOV insurance, also called disability insurance, ensures that you are insured when your income is lost due to disability. If you are an employee, you are usually automatically insured for this. This is because your employer arranges this. However, self-employed entrepreneurs must take out their own insurance.

What is an AOV insurance?

An AOV insurance is also known as disability insurance. With an AOV insurance you will receive a benefit in case you become disabled. Disability is for example when you get sick or have an accident which makes it impossible for you to work. An AOV insurance is actually a financial safety net and provides security of income.

Advantages of AOV insurance?

Taking out an AOV insurance has a number of advantages:

  • With an AOV insurance you are insured for an income in case you become disabled. It is a financial safety net
  • You decide the part of the income you want to insure up to a maximum percentage (the lower the insured amount, the lower the premium)
  • The insurer provides reintegration assistance
  • The premium of an AOV is often tax deductible
AOV insurance costs

The cost of AOV insurance depends on a number of factors, the most important of which are your profession and your age. An insurer mainly looks at how risky your profession is. A job where you work with dangerous machines or heavy parts is more risky than an office job, because the chance that you have an accident is bigger. As a builder or gardener you will therefore pay more for an AOV insurance than an accountant, because the risk that you become disabled is simply greater.

Compare AOV insurance

At Alpina.nl you can easily request a quote for AOV insurance. When requesting the quote, you fill in a number of details, such as your occupation, insured income and your age. Based on this information, we can make an accurate quote for you. You will get an overview of different AOV insurances, so you can easily compare premiums.

In addition to the premium and basic coverage, look carefully at what you do and do not want to insure. List your fixed costs and expenses and consider what you need to live. In this way, you can determine the amount you want to insure and you can be sure that you are properly insured if you become disabled unexpectedly.

Take out AOV insurance

Taking out AOV insurance is not mandatory, but it is wise. As a salaried employee, in most cases you are automatically insured against the risks of disability.

As a ZZP'er you are responsible for taking out such insurance. Being unable to work can be a major financial blow for a self-employed person. If you are sick for a long time or have to recover, you miss out on a lot of income, while your fixed expenses continue as usual.

Would you like more financial security? Then you may want to consider AOV insurance.

AOV insurance for the self-employed

As a self-employed person, you are responsible for your own income and paying the bills of your business. You do not have the safety net that a salaried employee automatically has. If you become incapacitated as a ZZP, this can have major consequences. The costs of your business will of course continue. With an AOV insurance you are assured of a payment when you become disabled. Even if the cause of your disability has nothing to do with your work, you are insured. This means that the accident can also be caused by something outside your work.

Cheap AOV insurance

There are many insurers on the market who offer AOV insurance. Probably you are wondering which insurer offers the cheapest insurance. The cheapest AOV insurance can be found by comparing insurers. Do not only look at the amount of the premium, but also at the coverage and conditions. In some cases the cheaper AOV insurance has lesser conditions, for example, because there is a longer waiting period. This does not mean that the most expensive insurance always has the best coverage. By comparing well, you can find a cheap AOV insurance with the best conditions.

AOV insurance for self-employed people in construction

As a self-employed worker in the construction industry, you run a greater risk of becoming unfit for work than, for example, a consultant working in an office. After all, on a construction site you work with tools and machines. There is also heavy physical work involved, such as loading and unloading materials. Therefore, the risk of becoming ill or having an accident is much higher. Even when you are always careful. An AOV insurance is therefore no superfluous luxury as a self-employed person in the construction industry. It can save you a lot of financial worries.

Why take out AOV insurance?

If you are currently healthy, the chances of you ever getting sick or having an accident seem very small. But did you know that 1 in 4 people become disabled at some point in their lives? You can get sick or have an accident in many different ways, such as a virus or bacteria, a nasty fall while riding a bike or a skiing accident on vacation. As an entrepreneur, if you are unable to work for an extended period of time, you miss out on a large part of your income.

You may have built up a good buffer, but often this is only for a few months. The moment you sit at home for an extended period of time, you will at some point run out of your buffer while the fixed expenses continue.

By taking out AOV insurance, you can be sure that you can just pay the bills.
