Protection benefits

We protect you by campaigning and influencing government to create a fair business environment that encourages self-employment as a career choice. We help you understand and manage your business risks, safe in the knowledge that we can provide tailored insurances and helplines that protect against the unforeseen.

Illness and injury cover

If you are ill or injured for three or more weeks and cannot work, IPSE will compensate you for loss of earnings.

Jury service cover

When you’re self-employed, serving on a jury can mean losing income. That’s why IPSE compensates members for loss of income due to getting called up for jury service.

Tax and VAT investigation cover

If your tax affairs are investigated by HMRC, IPSE will provide you with a team of experts who can take this off your plate, and financial cover for legal fees up

Contract failure cover

Get compensated if you find yourself in a situation where the agency you’re working through or your end client doesn’t meet the terms of the contract that you have with them.

Umbrella default cover

Get protected if you have an outstanding payment from an umbrella company that is going bankrupt or into administration.


The self-employed are stronger together. That’s why we bring you together, to champion and advocate on your behalf to government and industry.
