Salary Protection Scheme for Inland Fisheries Ireland Staff Members
Could you and your family survive without your salary if you fell ill and were unable to work? If your answer is no, then you need Salary Protection insurance.
The Salary Protection Scheme for IFI Staff Members protects your salary against the impact of illness or disability, providing you with a replacement income* should you fall ill and become unable to work.
Exclusively available to IFI staff, the security and benefits of this Salary Protection Scheme are not available anywhere else.
- A replacement income of up to 75% of your salary* if you fall ill and are unable to work
- Life cover of typically twice your annual salary
- Tax relief on the contributions that you pay (find out more)
- A claims service you can trust (find out more)
Why is Salary Protection so important?
*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 Scheme deferred period as denoted in the Scheme Summary Booklet.
How much does it cost?
The Salary Protection Scheme for IFI Staff Members is designed to be affordable for every member. It is remarkably good value because it’s negotiated on a special ‘group basis’ and harnesses the purchasing power of the collective.
The contribution rate is currently set at 3.55% of gross salary.
You are eligible for tax relief at your highest rate of tax on the contributions that you pay.
This means that the net contribution rate is only 2.12% after tax relief is applied, if you are paying tax at the higher rate.
The Real Question is…
Can you afford not to have this Salary Protection insurance in place for you and your family? Membership of the Scheme is a small price to pay for the security and peace of mind that this cover provides.
What do I need to know?
Salary Protection is a simple, tax-efficient way to protect your family and livelihood in the event of illness or injury.
