What is Income Protection?
Income Protection an insurance policy, paying benefits to policyholders who are incapacitated and unable to work due to illness or accident.
Income protection insurance is designed to pay part of your earnings in the event of illness or accidental injury. It is essentially to cover your outgoings if you become ill or have an accident that prevents you from working. You will receive a monthly benefit paid until you either return to work, the end of the policy term, or you die.
Types of Income Protection
Long Term Income Protection - This pays out until a fixed age, death or when you return to work. It is underwritten at the point of applying for the policy so you know exactly what you are covered for as well as any pre existing conditions you are not covered for.
Short Term Income Protection - This will usually pay an agreed monthly amount during a short period (usually 12 months) if you are unable to work due to accident, sickness or redundancy.
