Did you know that only 12% of employer’s support their staff if they fall sick? Income protection insurance cover is designed to assist you financially in the event that you can no longer work whether to due to long term sickness, injury or disability.
With income protection you can expect to receive around 50-70% of your gross salary tax free so you can maintain your lifestyle and make sure you can pay your bills or rent/mortgage.
Typically, income protection is considered a long-term policy and will continue to pay-out until you can return to work, retire or die. In the past year over 129,000 claims were risen for income protection and the Association of British Insurers stats a 91% success rate for pay-out.
The cover is designed to give you peace of mind in the event of sickness or injury which could prevent you from returning to work for long periods of time.
Two main types of income protection insurance are available:
Theoretically you can get a pay-out immediately, as soon as you are no longer able to work. However, you should have backup funds such as some sick pay from your employer, or your own savings which you can live off for a period.

Yes, absolutely! This is an alternative to your typical income protection cover as it is designed to provide pay-outs for up to 12 months, whereas typical income protection cover is designed for much longer pay-out terms and you can continue claiming as long as your policy states.
Critical illness insurance is slightly different and instead falls outside of income protection. That is because critical illness insurance is designed to pay out one large lump sum if you suffer from a critical illness or injury would impact your ability to work. The large sum could be used to pay for medical treatments, or day to day bills.
