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.

What Cover Options Are Available?

Two main types of income protection insurance are available:


To cover against any serious illnesses that force you to be unable to work e.g. cancer, coma, heart attack, mental illness and other diseases.


If an accident has left you with injuries and you are unable to work e.g. broken bones, back issues, concussion, amnesia and more.

  • How Quick is the Pay-Out?

  • Can I Get Short Term Income Cover?

    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.

  • Does This Cover Critical Illness?

    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.
