Understandably many customers have questions about income protection and although a Caboodle adviser will be happy to answer them for you some of the most frequently asked are detailed below:

How much cover can I take?

– The maximum amount of cover available ranges between 50-65% of monthly gross income or £3,000, whichever is the lower. The amount of cover you need and are able to qualify for can be calculated quickly by your Caboodle adviser

How much does it cost?

– The actual cost will vary from company to company and is based on individual circumstances although your adviser will search for the cheapest quote available

What is a deferred period?

– A deferred period is the amount of time that must pass between your first day off work and the point at which you will start receiving benefits from your Income Protection policy. Deferred periods help you to make the most of any employer`s benefits or sick pay before your policy becomes effective. The longer the deferred period the lower the cost, although this also means you have to wait longer to start receiving benefits from the policy if you are off work. Your adviser will discuss deferred periods with you to tailor the policy to your individual circumstances

Is there anything that is not covered?

– There may be medical exclusions on your policy which mean that some conditions will not be covered. Your adviser will let you know what these could be after they have gathered information about your medical history

Do you need to know personal details about my medical history?

– With Income Protection we need to understand about your health to make sure the cover you get is appropriate. This process is called underwriting and is the process we go through to assess the risk the provider is taking in giving you cover and to work out the cost. To gather the right information about your personal circumstances and medical history we will ask certain questions over the telephone. This process replaces the need for a medical examination and is generally a much quicker process

Your initial consultation is free and you are under no obligation to proceed with a mortgage we recommend. There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The exact fee will depend on your circumstances and may be reduced depending on the loan amount and any commission we receive from the lender. It is estimated that the fee will be £595, but it may range from £495 to 1% of the amount you borrow. The fee is only payable on completion and can normally be added to the mortgage. This will be discussed and agreed with you before you make an application. Please ask for a personalised illustration.

Secured loan rates from 3.95% APRC, although we have plans available up to 29.9% APRC which allow us to assist customers with the most severe credit problems. The overall cost for comparison is 7.65% APRC. For secured loans a broker fee up to 10% of the loan amount borrowed may be payable on successful completion. A lender fee may also apply. The actual APRC available will depend on your circumstances. All loans are subject to status. Please ask for a personalised illustration.
