SQL | Index with included columns
An index created with included columns is a non-clustered index that also includes non-key columns in the leaf nodes of the index, similar to a clustered index.
Benefits of included columns
1. Gives you the ability to include columns types that are not allowed as index keys in your index.
2. when all the columns in your query are either an index key or included column, the query no longer has to do an extra lookup in order to get all the data needed to satisfy the query which results in fewer disk operations. This is similar to the covering index

Using the same query as above this should also be able to execute without requiring any extra lookups.
