Income Care provides affordable protection against loss of income, should you become sick or injured and unable to work.
Income Care replaces a proportion of your income if you are totally disabled through sickness or injury and cannot work. The basic cover allows you to insure up to 75 per cent of your income and offers a range of waiting and benefit periods.
You can tailor your Income Care cover by taking up any or all of the following optional benefits:
- Increasing Claim Option
- Accident Option
- Super Continuance Option
- Cash Back Option
- Premium Saver Option
You also have the option of including Business Overheads Cover, which is specifically designed for self-employed people. This cover ensures the eligible fixed operating expenses of the business can still be paid, even if you are unable to work because of sickness or injury.
Premiums are based on considerations including your age each year, health, gender, occupation, smoking habits, waiting period, benefit period and sum insured.
The premium for an Income Care policy will generally be an allowable deduction from your assessable income under Section 8-1 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997. This deductibility applies whether you are self-employed or an employed person.
