Income Protection Insurance

Income Protection is an insurance which is designed to safe guard you and your family’s financial future in cases where you may not be able to work for reasons out of your control, such as; accident, sickness, disability or involuntary unemployment.

It's worth checking with employers, what cover they offer staff. Some will protect staff against accident or sickness but NOT redundancy.

Imagine the scenario where the main earner is made redundant or is injured and unable to work. Suddenly they are unable to provide a regular income to cover household bills, mortgages, loans and other general day to day living costs. For most of us, it is not a bright or happy picture.

This is where Income Protection comes in. It can provide some financial security for you and your family and in most cases, having the Income Protection doesn’t impact on your ability to apply for Job Seekers Benefit and others similar to it.
