Let's start at the beginning – what exactly is income protection?
Why you might need it
If you become ill or suffer an injury during your working life, an income protection policy can help protect against possible loss of income and give you peace of mind.
Do you really need income protection insurance?
Income Protection replaces part of your income (tax free) if you are unable to work for a long period of time because of illness or disability, and will continue to pay out until you can return to some kind of paid work, reach retirement or death, whichever is sooner. Alongside life insurance, income protection is a must-have insurance for most working adults, but only few of us currently have. It has a waiting period before it will start to pay out. The longer you agree you’ll wait, the lower your premiums will be, so it is important you find out what income you can get from your employer, and other insurance in the event of illness or disability.

There are usually three types that you’re protected against – accident and sickness only, compulsory unemployment and the more comprehensive, accident, sickness and unemployment cover (ASU). You’re able to protect up to 70% of your gross salary and it’s designed to replace your income and to pay out a tax-free monthly sum until you are able to return to work, which can be used to help pay your monthly mortgage and certain bills.
