Why consider Income Protection insurance?

Rely on your income

Whether it's just you, or you're supporting a family, paying bills, covering the mortgage and putting food on the table can be impossible if you can't work. Income protection can replace up to 75% of your income if you're unable to work due to sickness or injury^.

Don’t have enough savings

If you suddenly couldn’t work, would you struggle to meet your financial commitments using savings alone? Even if you have accumulated savings, do you want to see your hard work disappear with one bit of bad luck?

Business owner or self-employed

If you are self-employed, would a personal injury or illness disrupt your ability to earn an income?

Aren't protected by Worker’s Compensation

If you are injured or become sick in a situation where worker's compensation isn't able to cover you, how would you keep paying the bills?
