Income protection insurance can be a cost-effective way of protecting yourself financially if you are unable to work due to illness or injury. 


What many people don’t realise is that taking out an income protection policy can have benefits beyond the financial. Many policies now offer ‘extras’ to also help support policyholders’ health and wellbeing during a difficult time in their life.


The evolving nature of protection

Income protection is designed to pay a percentage of your regular income to help support you financially if you are unable to work. But many modern policies take a more holistic approach to your wellbeing. They may offer, for example, access to mental health support, physical therapy or dietary advice to aid your recovery.


Support at a difficult time

When you’re unable to work due to illness or injury, the last thing you want to be worrying about is your next mortgage payment or how you’ll afford your children’s school uniforms. For an affordable premium, income protection means that all you’ll need to think about is getting back to full strength.
