Our Income Protection can be tailored to include the following options:
The prospect of long-term ill health can be frightening and stressful, and it is something many people prefer not to think about until they are unfortunate enough to develop a health problem.
When this happens, one of the first things a lot of people worry about is money.
You may be lucky enough to have some short-term sickness provision from your employer,
but what happens if your ill health is likely to be prolonged?
If you have no provision from your employer or are self-employed,
how will you pay your bills or feed your family?
Income Protection is designed to support you if you can’t work due to sickness or an injury.
This policy ensures that you continue to receive a regular income until you are able to
work or retire, so you can focus on looking after your health rather than
worrying about your finances.
How much does Income Protection cost?
This depends on what level of cover you need along with your age, your medical history and whether you smoke. Once your adviser understands more about your circumstances and needs they will be able to provide you with an initial quote.
What is the maximum age that I can take out Income Protection?
Generally to take out Income Protection the maximum age you can be at the start of your policy is 59 and it would cease at your pension age. Once your adviser knows more about your circumstances they will be able to recommend a suitable policy to match your income needs.
