Pro-Secure now provides the PFA with a Pro-Secure Personal Accident & Sickness Insurance Policy for every professional player in England. However the PFA strongly advise each individual member to take out a personal policy and through our long-standing partnership with the PFA has led to the effective communication to its members that they all require career-ending injury cover.
“Every player runs the risk of career-ending injury which makes it imperative for every PFA member, irrespective of status or income, to protect their futures. We believe all players should have their own individual Pro-Secure Personal Accident Policy in their own name to insure against the loss of future career earnings and secure their future. This type of cover is particularly important for young players who need to insure against the loss of future career earnings.”
Gordon Taylor OBE, PFA Chief Executive.
