Unlike other forms of personal risk insurance, Income Protection Insurance premiums are tax deductible for most taxpayers.
The after tax cost of the cover can therefore be significantly less than the cost of the premium.
You can claim the cost of any premiums you paid for insurance against the loss of your income.
You must include any payout you received under the policy for loss of your income on your tax return.
You cannot claim a deduction for a premium or any part of a premium which you paid under a policy to compensate you for such things as a physical injury.
