Income Protection Insurance UK

Is your income vital to you and your loved ones?

It’s easy to take your income for granted and think it’s always going to be there. We all do it; but if you get ill or injured and your work stops paying, will you still have that income? If not, then it might be time you considered income protection insurance.

What do people claim for?

The most common claims are for
musculoskeletal injuries like strains, sprains and back pains
mental health conditions like anxiety and depression

But income protection insurance can cover many* illnesses and injuries that stop you from working for weeks rather than days.


Who needs income protection?

It’s for anyone who depends on their regular income, especially people who:
have only limited employee sick pay
have families or other dependants
have no other source of income
are self-employed

Protecting your income means that you can still afford:

Your bills

Your mortgage payments or rent

Food and essentials

Your leisure time

What is income protection insurance?

It’s a way of insuring yourself against the most common causes of lost income: illness and injury, both physical and mental. They’re unexpected and can be disastrous for your finances

If you get ill or injured and have to stop working, you might be shocked at how little financial support you could get.

£116.75 a week is all your employer has to pay you in statutory sick pay.

£90.50 a week is the Employment and Support Allowance for the self-employed.

Whereas an Eleos income protection policy can give you up to 70% of your pre-tax income (or up to £2,800 - whichever amount is lower).

Take out a policy while you’re fit and working, then, if sickness forces you to stop, you can make a claim to replace most of your income and receive monthly payments until you’re able to go back to work.

What are the benefits of our income protection insurance?

Financial security

If you have to stop working you can get up to 70% of your normal income. That’s roughly the same as what your employer pays you after tax, and you keep getting it until you can go back to work.

An Eleos income protection policy could cost you as little as £5 a month
Check how much and how long your employer will pay you if you have to take sick leave.
If you’re self-employed ask yourself “what would I do, If I am ill or injured and can’t earn?” Bear in mind that government support could be a very small fraction of your regular income.
Short-term protection

Some may use this for temporary illness or injury.

Long-term protection

Some may use this for longer term illnesses or injuries.

With Eleos you can choose to be paid for up to 1 year or 2 years. Whichever you choose, we’ll pay you for as long as you’re unable to work up to the maximum agreed.

It’s hard to put a price on financial security and peace of mind but at Eleos we’ve done just that.
No - Income protection covers you for those times when you have to take a break from work because of health problems. It can’t help if you’re made redundant or lose your job.
When you take out income protection insurance we ask you to choose a ‘waiting period’. This is the time between becoming ill or injured and getting your first payment.
