Why Do You Need Financial Protection?

Many people in Ireland will be out of work for more than six months through illness or injury. if you were one of them, how would you survive without an income? Many employers don’t provide any form of sick pay and for those who do, the majority will only pay you for six months.

Income Protection pays you a regular income if you can’t work as a result of illness, accident or injury.

This income will mean that you can continue to meet your monthly mortgage repayments and household bills and maintain your current standard of living. It will continue to pay you an income until you are well enough to return to work, or if not, until you reach retirement age. You can reduce the cost of cover by claiming tax relief on your contributions.

 

We deal with all four providers of Income Protection Insurance: Aviva, New Ireland, Irish Life and Royal London. We constantly compare the plans offered by these providers to ensure that we get you the best policy at the best price. We will guide you through every stage of the process from setting up your policy to the claims stage and beyond.

How long am I covered?

Who is income protection for?

Everyone who is in paid employment, whether full-time or part-time (minimum 16 hours per week) and relies on their income.

Is it good value for money?

Not only is Income Protection from New Ireland competitively priced, you can also claim tax relief on your contributions, so a premium of €50 per month could cost just €29.50 after tax ( assumes you are a higher rate tax payer).

Set Up An Income Protection Plan in 3 Easy Steps 

Step 1

Arrange an online or phone review with us to determine the right policy and benefits for you and to complete a short application form. When Covid-19 restrictions are eased you may choose to arrange a face to face review.

Step 2

The insurance company will set up a confidential, tele-interview with a specialist nurse to gather the necessary information for your application. This interview takes place over the phone, at a time that is convenient for you. A copy of the questions and answers will be sent to you, so that you can check what has been said and recorded. In some cases we may need a report from your GP or require you to undergo a medical examination at our expense.

Step 3

Once you have been accepted and put you on cover, you will receive all policy documents by post. Please ensure you keep these in a safe place.
