Income protection ensures you against the inability to work due to illness/injury/disability, NOT redundancy or lack of work. Maybe you could struggle through & make ends meet financially for 12 months at a push, but could you manage 4 years being out of work and not earning any income in that time.
Important information to know.
You pick the limit or time-frame.
You might be asking is there a limit or time-frame on how long your income will be covered when you are unable to work & does its scale back as the years go by. You can cover your income for 10, 20, 27, 32 (however many years you like) up to a maximum age of 70. So for example, if you buy an income protection policy to age 68, your policy will pay you a replacement income until you hit 68. The income you receive doesn’t scale back. If you insure yourself for €4000 per month, you’ll receive a taxable income of €4,000 per month until your policy ends. You also have the option to add “claim escalation” to your policy which means your payout increases by 3% every year you are out on your claim.
