Life insurance and income protection plans

What you need to know

Insurance is about protecting the people who are most important to you. It’s about having financial protection — in the event you need it. It’s about taking care of your loved ones should you die. It’s about having peace of mind. PayPal provides you with 100% company-paid life insurance and income protection, so there’s no cost to you.

Life insurance

In the event of your death, life insurance pays a lump-sum payment to your designated beneficiaries in the amount of 4x your gross basic annual salary.

Income protection insurance

Income protection insurance pays you a benefit if you’re ill or injured and, as a result, cannot perform the material and substantial duties of your normal occupation, nor any other job, within or outside of PayPal.

The benefit replaces 75% of your gross base salary (less ESA and WRAC), up to a maximum salary of £144,000, less base single persons’ state incapacity benefit.

Eligibility and enrolling

You’re automatically enrolled in life insurance and income protection from day one.
