What is Income Protection Insurance?
Income protection insurance is designed to provide a
regular income if you were to suffer an accident or illness that leaves
you unable to work, or if you find yourself unemployed.
There are two main types of income protection insurance:
- Accident, sickness, and unemployment insurance: Designed to cover you in the short term. These policies will generally pay out for one or two years only.
- Long-term income protection insurance: Aimed at sufferers of long-term illnesses who may not be able to earn for a prolonged period. These policies will pay out until you are well or until the end of the term.
Why do I need income protection insurance?
Income protection insurance can ease the burden of a lost wage, helping you to stay up to date with your financial commitments, such as mortgage repayments. This kind of protection can be essential if you are the main income provider in your household.
Many policies will still provide support if you go back to work at a reduced capacity with lower pay. This allows you to focus on your recovery and spending quality time with those that truly matter.
What’s more, if you’re applying for a mortgage, many providers require income protection insurance before they will agree your contract. We can help you to apply for both at the same time.
