Protect your most valuable asset - your income

Why is income protection important?

Have you ever considered how you'd get by without your income? Income protection is designed to help you get back on your feet if you are unable to work due to an accident1 or sickness1. Be covered for up to 75% of your Pre-Disability Income up to $10,000 per month.

If something happens to you then you’ll receive a monthly benefit to help with any expenses, including:

  • Make mortgage or rent payments
  • Continue to make your repayments on your car
  • Cover your debts and expenses while you're out of work
  • Take care of your bills while you focus on getting better
