The financial consequences of a disability or extended illness could be devastating for your lifestyle and those that depend on you.
Recovering from an illness or accident is also difficult enough without the extra stress of financial worries.
Income Protection replaces your income if you can't work due to sickness or injury. It's important because your income is what allows you to live your life today - and make plans for tomorrow!
Income protection pays you a monthly benefit - just like your salary - and generally covers up to 75% of your pre-tax salary. The money can help you:
- cover your mortgage or rent payments
- continue to cover your living costs
- take care of all your normal bills while you focus on getting better.
