Income Protection

Safeguard Your Income, Ensure Peace of Mind

We insure our cars and homes, but often neglect to protect our income. If illness or injury interrupts your earnings, the impact can be severe, from missed mortgage payments to long-term financial stress. Income Protection Insurance ensures your family’s lifestyle is safeguarded, covering up to 70% of your salary if you can’t work. This allows you to recover without financial worries, providing peace of mind and stability. Consider Income Protection to secure your financial future.

How Can We Help?

Income protection is an insurance policy designed to replace a portion of your income if you are unable to work due to illness or injury. It pays out a regular benefit, typically a percentage of your salary, until you can return to work or reach retirement age, depending on the policy terms. This ensures you can continue to meet your financial obligations even when you are not earning.

Why is Income Protection Needed?

  1. Financial Stability: It provides a steady income stream, helping you cover essential expenses like mortgage or rent, bills, and daily living costs.
  2. Long-Term Security: Unlike short-term sick pay, income protection can provide coverage for an extended period, ensuring long-term financial support.
  3. Peace of Mind: It reduces the stress and anxiety associated with financial uncertainty during periods of illness or injury.
  4. Flexibility: Benefits can be used for any purpose, giving you the freedom to manage your finances as needed.

Why an Adviser is Best

  1. Customised Solutions: Advisers evaluate your specific needs and work situation to recommend a policy that offers the right level of coverage.
  2. Comprehensive Understanding: They explain the differences between various policies, such as the benefit period, waiting period, and coverage limits.
  3. Claim Support: An adviser assists with the claims process, ensuring you receive your benefits promptly and without unnecessary hassle.
  4. Regular Reviews: They regularly review your policy to ensure it remains aligned with your changing circumstances and income levels.
