Income Protection plans cover people if they are unable to work due to accident or illness. It is an insurance policy which provides a regular tax-free income if you are unable to work because of illness or disability. The benefit paid is a monthly payment up to a maximum percentage of earnings – often 50% or 60%
Policies pay out following a period of time off work, known as the ‘deferred period’, and will continue to pay out until either work is resumed or to the end of your specified term period.
