What is income protection?

No one knows what lies ahead, but we do know that accident or sickness can strike at any time. When it does, it could leave you unable to work, hitting your pocket hard.

With an income protection plan, you get to enjoy the peace of mind knowing that if you’re unable to work due to accident or sickness, you’ll receive a weekly or monthly cash lump sum. 

This valuable benefit can help pay for your everyday needs – from keeping a roof over your head and food on the table, to ensuring your household bills are covered. It’s straightforward, common-sense protection to see you through the hard times.

We offer a comprehensive service to help you find a plan that fits your unique requirements. We work with a select panel of income protection providers to offer a broad range of options.

Why do I need income protection?

If you’ve asked yourself the type of questions below, then an income protection plan could be exactly what you’re looking for:

“If I had a sickness or accident serious enough to stop me working for 6 months, how much money would I have coming in over that period and would this cover all my commitments?”

“Through my income, I protect my family, home, cars and pets; – how will I continue to do that if I suddenly lose my income due to an accident or sickness and I’m just not able to carry on working for a period?”

So if you’re in a position where your income is at risk if you were to suffer an accident or injury, or if you’re concerned that you may be unable to work altogether if the worst was to happen, then you should think carefully about the benefits of income protection.

Do you take part in semi-pro or hazardous sports?

Traditionally, it’s been a challenge to get income protection cover if you take part in hazardous or semi-professional sports.

Many insurers would decline these applicants altogether or exclude any injury suffered as a result of these sports. With so many of us taking part in sport, options have been limited. Fortunately, we’re one of the few providers who specialise in this area. So, whether you’re into motor racing or take part in football or rugby on a semi-pro basis, get in touch and we’ll help to find the right plan for you.

I put in a claim in beginning of October and they sorted it out very quickly and I’m with them good few years never had any complaints thank you.
