How to claim income protection insurance

When you’re too ill or hurt to work, the last thing you need is the stress of unpaid bills.


Our income protection insurance is your safety net. It pays you a regular income when you’re unable to earn a living due to illness, injury or redundancy.   

Expenses like groceries, petrol, mortgage payments and school fees can be covered without you having to drastically downgrade your lifestyle or, worse still, sell off your assets.

What’s more, it’s easy to claim against your income protection insurance.
