Income Protection is an insurance that clients usually buy in order to provide a long-term peace of mind. Clients frequently purchase a policy to provide financial security alongside a long-term financial commitment such as a mortgage or a loan.
All policies have a minimum cover period that can be tailored to protect you for a certain period of time (i.e. until a mortgage or loan is re-paid). The cost of cover can be fixed if you plan ahead and inform us how long you plan to keep your cover in place.
Income Protection is completely flexible and can be changed at any time during the life of your policy. It is really important that you contact us to update your policy if your circumstances change. Common changes may be if your salary increases or decreases to ensure the amount of salary insured is accurate and makes any claim easy to process should you have an accident or fall ill.

Don’t panic, we’re here to help and many policies can be put into “payment holiday” status until you get back on your feet. Whilst you wouldn’t be covered for accident or sickness cover during this time, it does mean that you don’t have to re-apply for cover once you find new employment.
