What factors affect the cost of Income Protection premiums?

Premiums are influenced by various factors, including your age, health, occupation, the percentage of income you want to cover, the policy’s deferred period, and the range of illnesses and injuries covered.

Can I still claim on my Income Protection policy if I have a pre-existing condition?

This depends on the policy. Some insurers may exclude pre-existing conditions or increase premiums for them. It’s important to disclose all medical history when applying for the policy to ensure full transparency.

How do changes in my employment status, such as a promotion or a new job, affect my Income Protection policy?

Changes in employment, especially those that involve a significant income change, can affect your policy. It’s crucial to inform your insurer of any such changes to ensure your coverage remains adequate and relevant. In some cases, your policy may need to be adjusted to reflect your new income level.
