If you’re unable to work through injury or illness, receive financial support for your ongoing payments, such as loans, mortgages and day-to-day expenses.
Contact one of our independent advisors if you’d like help getting started with income protection insurance. We work with all of the major UK providers, meaning we can compare your options and answer questions about multiple policies. This is a free service, and we aim to find you the most appropriate policy for your needs at a competitive premium for you.
Income protection is designed to provide financial support if you cannot work due to injury or illness. You’ll receive a monthly, tax free payout to cover some of your costs. Depending on the type of protection you choose, this could be a percentage of your gross monthly income, or an amount to cover your mortgage and loan repayments.
Income protection may be available as short or long term cover, and will cover you for many eventualities that lead to you being unable to work. If you’re concerned about what would happen if you’re unable to work and the sickness pay available won’t cover your expenses, income protection may offer you the support you need until you can return to work.Get a quote
There are several types of income protection insurance available, each with their own rules around what you’re covered for, how much you’ll receive, and how long your deferment period is (which is how long you’ll have to wait before making a claim). Some examples of the options that may be available to you include:
Income protection is unique in that it covers your salary, loan or mortgage payments when you’re unable to work. However, individuals may want to consider critical illness protection as an alternative or in addition to income protection. This cover pays out a lump sum if you’re diagnosed with a critical illness listed in the policy terms, so if you’re unable to work due to a critical illness, this may be more beneficial than the monthly payments you would receive from income protection insurance.Learn more about critical illness cover
The main benefit of income protection is the financial security and peace of mind it may provide you during a difficult period. The additional income or cover for loan and mortgage repayments it offers may be a lifeline while you recover from injury or illness. Some of the benefits include:
Peace of mind knowing that you have financial support if you’re unable to work.
Cover your ongoing costs in the event that your income stops due to injury or illness.
It may be a more cost-effective option compared to other policies that provide similar coverage.
