Income Protection Cover

This type of cover offers you financial security for yourself and your family against a loss of earnings as a result of any illness, injury, disability or accident resulting in you being unable to work for longer than your deferred period. This plan will provide you with a weekly income after a deferred period (Chosen by you either 13, 26 or 52 weeks). You will also receive tax relief on all premiums you pay (max 10% of your total salary) at your marginal rate of tax.
