Understanding Income Protection Insurance

An income protection policy will pay the insured worker if they cannot go to work due to an illness or injury. These policies usually continue to pay out a percentage of the individual’s income until they are healthy enough to return to work, or in some cases, until they reach state retirement age.

The amount of money received is not likely to replace 100% of the worker’s income, but a proportion of it. This amount may decrease over time and as the worker gets closer to returning to work or retiring. For example, the policy may pay out 70% of income for the first six months and then drop to 50% for the next six months. The money is paid out in the same frequency that the worker is normally paid, usually each month.

How has the coronavirus pandemic affected income protection policies?

Due to the recent pandemic, many insurers have started to include terms and conditions making them not liable for payout in the event of a global health problem. However, not all of them have started including these conditions.

How much of my income will it cover?
