If your client is unable to work because of sickness or an accident, not knowing if they can pay their bills causes additional worry and stress. Income Protection alleviates that with cover options that pay out when it matters.
Income Protection is typically used to cover clients in less risky occupations (usually office workers) who want to protect their own income. They’ll need to be a UK resident and registered with a GP for at least two years. Our cover offers many valuable features included in the cost, such as:
If your client becomes sick or injured and is unable to work, they’ll receive a monthly benefit of up to 60% of their income – up until they’re able to get back to work or their claim period ends. With level-cover, the monthly benefit is limited to a maximum of £250,000 a year (or £20,833 a month); for inflation-linked cover, the maximum is £175,000 a year (or £14,583 a month).
Our Income Protection is suitable for many of your clients – learn more about the main features, suitability, costs and waiver of premium here:
With Income Protection suiting your clients in less risky jobs (like office workers or accountants), what does that mean for your clients in riskier jobs?
Personal Sick Pay is aimed at clients who are more expensive to insure (like construction workers, nurses and driving occupations). It’s a more affordable option for many clients as the price increases with age.
