What is the maximum age for Income Protection Insurance?

I want to take out this cover but loads of places have declined to quote stating that I am over the maximum entry age, I’ve recently turned 60. Can I get cover from anywhere?

Cover over the age of 60

Yes, you are able to get cover so don’t worry. This is a common issue as there are a large number of people who have plans that end at age 60 only to find that their cover can’t be extended upon reaching age 60, even though they plan to continue working.

It is a shame that the vast majority of insurers have a maximum entry age of 59 years old (which is very frustrating) but luckily there are a couple of insurers with a maximum age to take out cover of 64 years old. With these insurers it is even possible for the plan to run up to the age of 70 years old.

I was having trouble finding a suitable income protection policy online and was unclear about what I should be looking for, so I contacted Drewberry. The process was very quick and straightforward. They called me and explained how this type of insurance works, and then went through series of questions about my circumstances to try and find the right cover for me. They came back to me the next day with several suitable options and emailed all the relevant information clearly laid out. Michael Barrow, the advisor I spoke to, was happy to explain things in detail and answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Drewberry as they took all the hassle out of a confusing search.
