Income protection insurance

No, NOT PPI!! :-)

I've had income protection insurance for many years now and, during times following redundancy, it has been a lifeline.

My question is about an apparently global limit - of age 65 - for cover. I can't retire until I'm 66 at the earliest but, in he event of redundancy after my 65th birthday, I'd be uncovered.

Yes, I know there are other options: retire at 65, use savings to life off, 'tighten my belt' - but they're not the options I'm pursuing.

Does anyone know if there are policies available that go beyond age 65?

    Would you really want to buy insurance just in case you were made redundant within a one year timescale, assuming you will retire at 66.
    You would stiill get redundancy pay, whatever your age
