Are you missing out on the income protection market?

Income protection is the under sold product that’s starting to create huge waves in the financial market. In 2019, according to figures obtained from the Exchange Portal provided by fintech company Iress, income protection sales for Q1 reached a record-breaking growth of 50%1. The under 30s also featured strongly at product level for income protection. That age group accounted for 29.6% in Q1 of 20182.

They are living in a world of uncertainty. So, is it any wonder the appetite for income protection cover is growing? In 2018, sales rose by 7% and by 2023 are expected to grow by over 18%3 Plus, the Government ‘Good Work Plan’ will raise the issue of employers’ sickness policies, putting the importance of income protection into greater focus.
