Many people will often find themselves unable to work due to a serious illness or injury, and the thought of what would happen in this situation may concern you. Income protection insurance is designed to give you some cover if you can’t earn an income for those reasons. If something happened to you would you be able to survive on savings, or on sick pay from work? If not, you’ll need some other way to keep paying the bills, and you might want to consider income protection insurance.
The policy itself can be set up for short term cover, or long term, to replace some of your lost income in the event of an absence from work. These are designed to pay out until you return to work, and will allow multiple claims throughout the policy lifetime. Typically, these policies will suit those that are self-employed, or for an employed worker who does not have any benefit of sick pay. However, that is not to say you cannot use a policy to compliment what you already have.
Income protection is designed to protect your salary, should you be off work and your employer cannot cover you. It is therefore used in lieu of “sick pay” and can cover you for as long as you need it to. If you receive sick pay for a number of months then the policy can be lined up to pay when this ceases.
