Payment Protection Insurance

Updated: Dec 11, 2019

Payment Protection Insurance and Short Term Income Protection Insurance can provide a monthly income to help cover your regular outgoings if you can’t work due to an accident, illness/injury or, often as an optional extra, unemployment.


There are important differences between these products, and long-term Income Protection Insurance. They include a limit on how long the replacement income will be paid for – usually between 12 and 24 months. By contrast, Income Protection Insurance will pay out for as long as you are unable to work (up to the policy expiry).


Unemployment cover is often an optional extra on these policies, or can be purchased as standalone cover.


  • Payment Protection Insurance is optional.

  • There are other providers of Payment Protection Insurance and other products designed to protect you against the loss of income.

  • The plan will have no cash in value at any time, and will cease at the end of the term.

  • If premiums are not maintained, then cover will lapse.
