Apologies for the anon.
I receive high rate mobility and use it to lease a motability car.
My workplace has recently introduced a new ‘safe driving’ policy which means I have to complete a risk assessment (done) and also show my motor insurance (which has to have business insurance included) to my manager every 6 months.
All of which is fine, I contacted RSA - motability and they added the business insurance with no problem (just so I can claim travel expenses back when necessary - I’m not using my car every day, I’m office based).
The problem is my motor insurance states that it is Royal Sun Alliance - Motability car insurance, although I use a wheelchair or crutches and am genuinely entitled to DLA given the current criteria, I don’t WANT anyone in work to know my business.
My manager is a serious gossip and I KNOW that he will tell HIS manager, who is also his best friend, who will spread the gossip on to the Executive Management Team, I’m fully aware of confidentiality and this shouldn’t be allowed and all that stuff but I know that it WILL. My claiming DLA and having a motability care will be a juicy piece of gossip too hot not to share…
In these days of increased disability hate crime I’m worried, I don’t want them to know, I feel that it would make me more vulnerable if they did.
Thank you, I’m just ranting and wringing my hands here. I think I’ll contact RSA and see if they can issue a non motability obvious motor insurance…
