It’s hard to keep going when illness or injury stops your income.
What if your ability to earn an income suddenly stopped?
Illness, injury or disability can happen at any time – to anyone. Prolonged periods off work for treatment and recovery is consequently inevitable should it happen to you.
Your employer may continue to pay you for a period of time but for how long?
The average income protection claim lasts 5 years. If you are self-employed, you will not get any help from the Government. Even if you are entitled to the State Illness Benefit, you will get just €193 per week (as of March 2017). This could have a huge financial impact. Things you take for granted, such as paying your bills or for your children’s education, could become a struggle.
Income protection is a policy that provides an alternative income if you find yourself in that situation. It means you can focus on your recovery without having to worry about keeping on top of the bills that matter.
