Additional benefits of Income Protection
Our Income Protection under our Business Menu Plan automatically includes fracture cover and hospitalisation payment as standard.
There’s no need to wait for your chosen deferred period to end before getting a payout and they don’t affect your main Income Protection cover.
We’ll pay up to £4,000 per fracture cover claim - we cover multiple fractures in the same claim, up to the £4,000 claim limit. And a client can make up to two fracture claims in a 12 month period.
- Fracture cover is available from the day a client's Income Protection starts and there's no deferred period to wait before making a claim
- It doesn't affect your client's main Income Protection cover.
The payout a client receives depends on the fracture site, see our plan details for full details.
Skeleton showing the varying payments of payments based on which body part you have fractured. The payout amount varies between £1,000 (collar bone) and £4,000 (Skull; open fracture, upper leg or knee)
If a client is hospitalised for more than six consecutive nights during their deferred period, we’ll pay £100 per night, for up to 90 nights during the term of their cover. If we’ve started paying a claim and they’re discharged from hospital, then readmitted for the same cause, we’ll restart their payments (subject to certain conditions).
We give clients with deferred periods of 13, 26 and 52 weeks a back-to-work payment in their first and second months back at work to help meet any additional expenses.
The amount they get depends on their cover payment period:
|Cover payment period||First month||Second month|
|Whole term||50% of monthly payment||25% of monthly payment|
|One, two or three years||25% of monthly payment||10% of monthly payment|
We won't pay an Income Protection claim if:
- It’s the result of intentional self-inflicted injury
- It’s the result of an exclusion shown on the cover summary
- The person covered doesn’t meet the definition of incapacitated in our plan details
- If any medical or other evidence is not supplied when we ask for it.
