Today in Spain there are more than 3 million self-employed according to data published by the Ministry of Employment and Social Security last December.
This confirms a radical change in the labor market in Spain that entails a series of particularities that must be taken into account, and that is that being self-employed entails a series of risks that an employee will not experience.
The self-employed face the lack of protection against accidents, diseases and risks inherent in the exercise of their activity. The famous saying that being self-employed you don't get sick, is real.
In this article we are going to talk about essential insurance for self-employed workers which Euroteide Insurance recommends you to take out to guarantee your peace of mind so that you only have to worry about carrying out your activity ...
Is professional insurance for the self-employed necessary?
They are not compulsory but are highly recommended in order to be sure that we will be covered in case something happens. It is estimated that an increasing percentage of self-employed people are taking them out, not only because they offer greater protection in their day-to-day work, but also because they can be deducted, which means that they come out cheaper than initially thought.
To give you an idea, through insurance for the self-employed you can insure your activity, remembering that a self-employed person has greater economic instability than a salaried employee. In the market we can find a wide variety of insurances to choose from, but as a minimum we recommend that you take out disability, life and accident insurance.
These are the insurances that every self-employed person should have taken out in order to be able to carry out their daily activity in a more secure way. As you know, if you don't work, you won't get any income and, consequently, you won't be able to make ends meet. This is why we recommend these insurances to cover possible accidents and thus ensure your income in case you are unable to carry out your work.
