You need to click yes to the wizard question of "do you contribute to a retirement annuity fund" then in that section which comes up in the return you would enter the Income Protection amount. Do you have the policy through your employment and it appears on your IRP5?

Had to press calculate while the return was still open otherwise it only shows your previous calculation if u want to look at it after u saved and look at issued returns to calculate! :-)
