Consider Income Payment Protection Insurance

by : Simon Burgess

Income payment protection insurance would allow the policy holder the satisfaction of knowing that they would be able to maintain all of their essential outgoings without having to struggle or miss one payment to pay another. Of course you would also be able to maintain the most essential outgoing, your mortgage repayment. If you do not maintain your mortgage then you will lose your home to the lender by way of repossession.

Not being able to maintain such things as your loan repayments could also see you having a day in court. At the very least your credit rating would decline and this could mean that getting any form of credit in the future would be extremely hard. Of course all your other repayments could be taken care of with income payment protection insurance such as food bills, heating, lighting and any essential unexpected bills that crop up.

You could lose your own income by having to take time away from work if you were to have an accident. Accidents happen at anytime, in the car, in the home or at work and you could have to take many months off to recuperate. You could also become sick, there are illnesses and super bugs going round all the time and if you are unfortunate enough to fall seriously ill to one of them then you would have to take lots of time off work. Redundancy is also a huge threat and no one can say that their job is safe. No job is safe and redundancies happen all the time. While you might have excellent qualifications and experience, it can take many months to find suitable work and again a policy would provide for you.

Whether you are unable to work due to accident or sickness the chances are that you will need to be able to concentrate on making a full recovery. In some cases, you could also find that you might have to spend several weeks or even months going to physiotherapy. If this is the case then you do not want to be worrying about your outgoings or how you are going to find the money to support your family. The same would apply while you were looking for work after becoming unemployed. You wouldn't be able to concentrate on making a good impression at interviews if you were worrying about how you were going to meet your outgoings.
