Income Protection Insurance 

Income Protection Insurance 

If you become too ill to work an income protection policy will provide an income until the policy expires. There are different levels of income protection cover: 
 
Own occupation; you can’t do your own occupation 
Suited occupation; you can’t do your own job or a similar one that suits your qualifications and experience 
Any occupation; you’re too ill to do any kind of work. 
 
It is important to take advice on income protection. It is one of the more complex insurance areas and there are questions of interpretation as to whether a policy holder meets the definition of the policy.  
An own job definition can be quite tightly worded so there might be less scope for dispute – that also makes this policy the most expensive of the three. 
 
How much you get paid, for how long and when payments start are all questions that need addressing ahead of time. The premium will be affected by your age and lifestyle.
