Income Protection Insurance Explained
Income protection insurance, also known as permanent health insurance or income replacement, provides a tax free income if the policy holder becomes unable to work through illness. An income is paid until retirement age, the end of the policy term or until the policy holder is able to return to work.
Permanent health insurance does not normally cover unemployment/redundancy.
There is a period following the accident or illness which must elapse before the policy begins to pay. This can range from a month up to two years and is known as the deferment period.
Most income protection policies will give a stream of monthly tax-free payments equivalent to between 50% and 65% of gross salary, although some companies will offer up to 75%.
Premiums are dependent on the monthly income required, age, current state of health smoker status and occupation. The deferment period also affects the premium, with a shorter period resulting in higher premiums being required.
You should check your employer benefits package before applying for an Income Protection plan as you may find they offer some cover. If you are unsure please speak to b-advised ltd
