The income requirement calculation assumes that the lump sum, when invested, will provide an income at the rate of 5%, plus growth at least equal to the underlying inflation rate.

Accordingly, it allows for an inflation protected income to be paid, whilst preserving the real value of the funds.

  • No allowance has been made for tax on the income protection benefits, other taxable income or, where applicable, on the partners income.
  • Consideration needs to be given, to the likelihood of increased costs and expenses in the event of (especially) long-term incapacity.
  • Where applicable, you also need to consider each partners ability to maintain their current income level in the event of the other being disabled for any extended period.
