It provides a monthly benefit for your clients should they be unable to work due to incapacity caused by illness or injury, which results in a loss of earnings. The monthly benefit is paid until they recover and are no longer incapacitated, their policy ends or they die - whichever happens first.
Your clients can use this monthly benefit in a number of ways:
- Helping towards their mortgage or rent payments
- Household bills
- For medical care

30% of employees in the UK don’t have any financial back-up plans, if they were affected by long-term illness, disability or loss of salary.
The average UK employee has enough savings to last just 32 days if their income stopped.
If your client doesn’t review their plan regularly, there could come a time when their cover is not enough to meet their needs.
- The monthly benefit we pay out under your client’s plan may affect their claim to benefits paid out under other income protection plans.
- Tax laws may change which could affect the monthly benefit your client’s plan pays out.
- This product does not include unemployment cover and therefore will not pay out if your client becomes unemployed.
