Some of the things partially covered by unemployment protection include:
- Your income (up to an agreed amount, usually 50%)
- A portion of your mortgage
- Credit card and loan repayments up to an agreed level
- Other household outgoings
Unemployment protection, also known as income protection, is payable in monthly tax-free sums for a temporary period, up to 24 months, until you are well enough to return to work or find a new job.
