Our verdict

ClearView income protection is good if you want an affordable insurer with flexible cover options and add-ons.

  • It's recently launched a new income protection range with two options: IP and IP Flexi.
  • It's one of the most affordable options on the market, according to our research prices.
  • It offers nine built-in benefits, four optional extras and a TPD lump sum option for no additional cost.
  • You can select a Booster option, which increases the benefit amount by an additional 20% for the first six months of a claim, but you need to pay extra for it.
