Plan basics

No surprise premiums

Our premiums start from only £8 a month. They will increase with age but we’ll tell you by how much before your Plan starts to help you manage your costs.

'Own Occupation' cover

We pay out if you can’t carry out your normal job.

Employed, self-employed or Co. Director

We cover up to 60% of your gross income up to £56,666 – and payments are tax free under current rules.

Multiple claims

We don’t limit the number of claims you can make during the term of the plan.

Three things to be mindful of

This Plan has no cash in value

If you stop paying your premiums your cover will cease.


Benefit may affect State Benefit

You should discuss with your adviser how any state benefit may affect the cover you need.

What's not covered

This Plan does not cover you for redundancy or unemployment caused by anything other than illness or accidental injury.

Flexible options to suit your needs

'Deferment Period'

You can choose how long you have to wait before we pay an income. This means you can choose 1, 4, 8, 13 or 26 weeks to match the benefits to the sick pay provided by your employer (as applicable).

Choice of cover

Choose if you receive income for 1 or 2 years if you have to claim.

Level or escalating cover

You can choose to fix your benefit, or for it to keep pace with inflation.

Room to move

We know that circumstances change – so you can increase or decrease your cover.

Premium holidays

You can stop paying your premiums for up to 6 months if you are made redundant, go travelling or are on maternity or paternity leave.

Hazardous pursuits

You can include or exclude these – and we’ll review them if your hobbies change so you’re not paying for something you no longer do.

With great support

Member Assistance Programme

We don’t just hand over cash, we offer a helping hand to help you get back to work from practical advice to real rehabilitation. Read more.

Waiver of premium

If we are paying a claim then we will refund the premiums you pay from the start of the claim and for as long as the claim continues.

Proportionate benefit

If you claim and wish to train for or start new employment at a lower salary, we may provide a partial benefit to reflect your reduced income.
