Income Protection is an insurance policy that covers your income in the event of you being unable to work due to sickness or ill health.

There are 2 types of Income Protection:

Short term: Typically this will pay out for a maximum of 12-24 months. It can cover upto around 65% of your pre tax income.

Long Term: This will pay out until you are able to return to work or the policy ends, whichever is sooner. It can cover upto around 65% of your pre tax income.
