Income Protection with No Medical

Income protection insurance can give the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you and your family will still be able to keep yourselves afloat if you suddenly lose your main source of income due to illness, injury or unemployment.

For short term income protection applying for cover without a medical is usually not a problem if you are in good health. If you have a pre-existing medical condition this will normally be excluded from cover. For long term cover depending on your medical history a medical examination may or may not be required and this will depend on the insurance company's underwriters. This is where using a broker can be very useful as they should be able to filter out companies who will require a medical.

Some company’s application processes are more complicated than others, with some willing to offer you income protection with no medical tests required. Others may want to know about any pre-existing conditions you have been treated for prior to purchasing the policy before they will be willing to offer you an income protection quote.
