Income Protection provides for a maximum of 75% of an individual's gross income.
Illness or accident can have a disastrous affect on the home, especially if the breadwinner has a family to support, and even worse if they are in debt.
Rent or mortgage payments, credit card debt, car repayments and other expenses still have to be met when a person is disabled and the income ceases.
Self-employed individuals, particularly, have the greatest need for income protection to ensure a disability does not result in them losing their income. Insurers have responded with policies that insure not only the self-employed person's income but their business overheads as well.
