What is Income Protection?

Income Protection pays you out a regular income if you are unable to work for a length of time due to illness or injury. Income Protection does not pay out for redundancy, death or dismissal.

What are the benefits of Income Protection?

Anyone can be taken ill or have an unexpected injury whether they have diabetes or not. And, even when you are not working, the household bills will still arrive. Not having the means to pay for groceries or rent is extremely stressful and the last thing you need when you are unwell. Income Protection can ensure that those bills are paid and your family is looked after.

Just click on the Green Button at the top, pop in a few details and your search for Diabetes Income Protection can begin.

How much does Income Protection cost?

Deciding on the right type of Income Protection plan for you will depend on a number of points:

  • How much of your income do you want to protect?

  • How many years do you want the policy for?

  • How long do you want to be able to claim for if you are off work?

Along with your general health and age, these factors will determine the premiums. Generally, the younger you start your policy, the less it will cost you.

Can I take out Income Protection if I have Diabetes?

Income Protection is available to diabetics but as the cost of an Income Protection plan is partly calculated using your general health, you may find that it is a little more expensive. But balance that against the fact that, should your diabetes get out of control and you are unable to work, you will have an income to help with the bills.
