If you were unable to earn an income due to sickness, accident, injury or disability, how would you pay your bills? 

Here's some food for thought:

  • 1 in 6 of Irelands working population will be disabled for more than 6 months
  • The average Income Protection claim duration is 5.5 years
  • Social Welfare disability allowance is just € 10,286 per annum for an individual
  • There is no Social Welfare benefit for the self-employed
  • Only 15% of private sector workers are entitled to sick pay for more than 6 months
  • Public sector workers receive full pay for their first 6 months of absence followed by half pay for the next 6 months

*based on Lansdowne Market Research Survey, April 2006

An Income Protection policy provides an income of up to 75% of your salary (including the state social welfare benefit) if you are unable to do your job due to any accident, illness or disability. You even get tax relief on the cost of the plans so the premiums work out suprisingly inexpensive!
