Most people insure their house and car, but do you have cover for the most important thing of all – you?
If you get sick or injured and can’t work, your income will likely stop — but the bills will keep coming in.
Income Protection cover pays you a monthly payment for a specified period if you can't work due to temporary disability or illness.
Key Income Protection features
Apply for cover up to 85% of your monthly income (maximum $25,000 per month)
Choose a maximum benefit period of two years, five years or until you reach age 65
Choose a waiting period of 30, 60 or 90 days
You are eligible for Income Protection cover if you are:
actively engaged in full-time, part-time, casual or contract employment
(as an employee or self-employed); and
are performing normal occupational duties.
You are not eligible for Income Protection cover if you are:
working less than 15 hours per week
aged 65 or more
not an Australian citizen or permanent resident
engaged in an occupation the Insurer does not cover
