First, what is Income Protection? – This is an insurance policy that pays out if you’re unable to work because of injury or illness. Income Protection usually pays out until retirement, death or your return to work, although short-term income protection policies, which last for one or two years, are also available at a lower cost.
There is no restriction as to what illness or injury you have, it’s simple. If you can’t work, you can make a claim. Income protection is different from critical illness insurance, which pays out a lump sum if you fall very ill.
How much does Income Protection pay out?
Income Protection pay-outs are usually based on a percentage of your earnings: 50 – 70% is the normal amount. Income Protection policies are made free of income tax.
Business Protection is an insurance that helps protect a business from the financial impact of key individuals. The type of business insurance covered are:
– Relevant life cover: One of the best forms of tax efficient business protection for you and your employees.
– Keyman Insurance: Traditional business protection policy to provide effective cover against the financial loss to your business for a key individual, of whom may die, or get a critical illness.
– Shareholder Protection Insurance: This type of insurance is designed to help the business and shareholders buy a terminally ill or deceased person’s share of the business
– Business Loan Protection: Covering any finance secured against your business to protect against the potential for future financial loss.
