Income Protection Insurance

It's when you need to make a claim that you realise just how wise investing in health and medical insurance can be.

If you're unable to work because of illness or injury, Income Protection Insurance will provide you with a regular tax-free monthly income.

The maximum amount of income you can replace through insurance is broadly the after-tax earnings you have lost, less an adjustment for state benefits you can claim. As with all insurance, it is important that you have the right type of policy which provides all that you need it to do for you.

Long-term income repayment policies usually come into play between the time when your employer stops paying sick pay, and when you collect your pension.

Shorter-term policies tend to be used to protect a mortgage, bank loan or other payment. These usually commence within a few weeks but stop entirely after 12 months or 24 months. Short-term policies often include unemployment and redundancy, unlike longer-term income protection cover which does not.

To clarify, Income Protection Insurance only applies to products that pay you an income if you become unable to work due to sickness or injury. Policies to protect mortgages, loans or credit card debts are often called Accident Sickness Unemployment (ASU) policies.

We will happily explain this in more detail to you.

For protection insurance we offer products from a limited panel of providers.

Risk Warning: These plans have no cash in value at any time.

Please refer to the policy document before taking out a policy to check any limitations.

Insurance which is based on an assessment of health of the applicant is unlikely to cover the applicant for previous or existing medical conditions and that the customer should refer to policy documentation and seek advice in order to understand what the policy does and does not cover before making an application.
