Replace Your Income With Income Insurance

Jun 28, 2008
Losing your income suddenly if you found yourself unable to work after falling sick or if you had an accident that meant you had to take time from work would be devastating. You could be left with a serious struggle on your hands to carry on paying your essential outgoings. One of your biggest worries of course would be how you would be able to continue meeting your mortgage, and income insurance would provide you with a replacement income to stop that worry. However it would also allow you to pay all your other essential outgoings and save you from having to juggle around your bills each month with the little bit of money you do have.

Knowing that you had the money in the bank each month for the direct debit for your mortgage would give great peace of mind. Falling into arrears with your mortgage is a nightmare that every homeowner faces. Just a couple of missed repayments would mean that you would have to catch up on the arrears while at the same time continuing to pay the mortgage. If you cannot make amends then the lender would have no option but to seek repossession of your home. Of course this is the worst case scenario but it does and has happened to thousands of homeowners in the past. Income protection would be able to put this worry far from your mind and would allow you to concentrate on getting better or would allow you to find work.

There are many more reasons why taking income protection is essential. You would be able to continue covering any loan or credit card repayments you have each month so you would not find yourself getting into debt. It can be so much harder to get out of debt and it can spiral out of control, again your protection policy would be able to stop worries such as these.

The cost of income insurance will vary depending on the provider so it is essential to shop around and compare the cost of a policy. Independent providers will supply you with a quote based on your age when applying and the amount of your income that you wish to cover. You would then pay the premium each month and if you were to find yourself unemployed or unable to work you would then be able to claim.

You need to check the terms and conditions of the policy before taking it out as these too differ. Some providers will offer income protection that would begin to provide you with your replacement income after only 30 days. Other providers might ask that you sustain from putting in your claim until as much as the 90th day. Income insurance would supply you with the benefit for so long before expiring; usually you will receive an income each month for a period of either 12 or 24 months. This is usually more than enough time for you to be able to make a recovery and get back to work or to attend interviews and find work.
