DCU Group Income Continuance Plan

This plan is designed to give you a replacement income* to help you if you're ill, or injured, and can't work.

It’s financial security and peace of mind, so you can focus on getting better.

What you get from income continuance

Up to 75% of your salary*

Income continuance gives you a replacement income of up to 75% of your annual salary* – if you can't work due to illness or injury, and your sick pay has reduced to half pay or ceased altogether.

*Less any other income to which you may be entitled e.g. half pay, Ill Health Early Retirement Pension, Temporary Rehabilitation Remuneration, State Illness Benefit. You must exhaust your employer’s sick leave entitlements and the plan deferred period as noted in the policy document.

Life Cover Benefit

The plan provides a lump sum of typically twice your annual salary if you die. This can help to pay bills and unexpected costs, at an already difficult time.

Specified Illness Benefit

You will receive a once-off lump sum if you are diagnosed with one of the Specified Illnesses listed in the policy document.

Pension Protection Benefit

You receive an extra 10% of your salary if you claim from the plan for over two years.

Tax relief

You're entitled to tax relief on the majority of your plan membership cost.

We're committed to your claim

Our helpful and friendly team will guide you through the claims process.

Remember, we're not automatically notified if you’re absent from work due to illness or injury. If this happens, it's important to contact us as soon as you think your salary will be affected.
