With the help of ActiveQuote you can compare income protection insurance policies (IPI) in one quick and easy search, while our partner also offers free, impartial advice from its team of product specialists.
The simple-to-use forms will ask for your basic personal, contact and employment details, including gross annual income and the amount of cover you're looking for from your income protection policy.
You'll need to choose what you'd like to cover; your salary, mortgage payments or loan and credit card repayments.
You can select when you'd like your policy to start and how long you'd like it to cover you for.
The term may be for a fixed number of years or until a specific point in the future, such as your retirement age or until your mortgage ends.
Income protection insurance can pay you up to 70% of your gross annual income and you can choose how much you wish to cover.

Once you've entered all the relevant details, our comparison software looks at short-term and long-term income protection policies and can let you filter through the results so you can find options with the right cover for a price that suits you.
The results page will show you each policy in a manageable table with details on monthly benefit, policy term, benefit term and waiting period.
