How can we help you with mortgage protection insurance today?

We've partnered with ActiveQuote[1] to help you compare quotes on income protection insurance to cover your mortgage payments.

ActiveQuote also offers free, independent advice from its team of product specialists.

Income protection insurance can cover your mortgage repayments in full, so long as they do not exceed 65% of your gross annual salary.

When comparing, simply choose how long you'd like your policy term to be and how much you'd like the policy to pay you each month.

Most income protection plans which are designed to cover your mortgage will pay you for up to 12 months or until you return to work, whichever is the sooner, although longer-term options are available.

To qualify for a policy, most insurers will require you to work at least 16 hours a week on a permanent basis

You can also compare quotes that insure more than just your mortgage repayments, allowing you to include cover for your bills and to maintain your lifestyle if you're unable to work.

The quote results table lets you tailor your policy so you can find an income protection plan suited to your budget and needs.

You can review each policy in detail and our easy-to-use table will show you the monthly benefit, policy term, benefit term and waiting period for each policy.

Remember it's essential that you supply accurate information about your age, address and employment - failure to do so would mean you'd be unlikely to get an appropriate quote and, in the event of a claim, your policy may be invalid.
