There are a number of Income Protection policies available which provide a regular tax-free monthly income if, due to ill health or injury, you are unable to work and as such suffer a loss of earnings.
You will receive a monthly payment until you are able to return to work, you retire or until your coverage period ends. The monthly payments enable you to pay your monthly bills and maintain your standard of living. You have the option to link the benefit to RPI to maintain your lifestyle throughout the claim period.
