    No i have toyed with the idea but i just put some cash in savings now and then
    Was paying mortgage insurance in case of redundancy which has come in handy in the past but now that needs cancelling as i can't make myself redundant
    Could pay sickness insurance with that

    I looked into it, was about £20ish a month....but they need proof of earnings to pay you the % of your wage, so decided against it lol
