Income protection

What you need to know

Income protection insurance (IPI) provides cover if you can’t work because of injury or sickness. Unlike mortgage insurance, income protection insurance isn’t limited to covering your mortgage payments. Many people do use it for that purpose but it provides more flexibility. Income protection generally pays out until you return to work, retire or die. There are also short-term products on the market which offer a couple of years’ cover with lower premiums. IPI doesn’t cover redundancy. The cost of your policy will depend on an assessment of how risky your work might be, with office workers generally paying lower premiums than, say, those employed on oil rigs.
