Income Protection Insurance

Whilst many of us are happy to insure our homes, cars, life etc, Many
of us do not insure our income against illness or the risk of disability.

Could your household survive financially should you be unable to work due to an injury, illness or becoming disabled and not having an income protection insurance policy in place?

Even a short time off work can have a devastating effect on your finances and may result in you being unable to fulfill many of your financial commitments and obligations such as your mortgage, loan payments, car finance as well as general expenses such as utility bills, grocery shopping, fuel etc.

With a simple to arrange Income Protection Plan, you will be paid a tax free monthly income to help cover your finances whilst you are off work. This income will continue to be paid until you are able to return to work or you reach your desired retirement age (which ever happens first).

Summary
Because there is a stricter underwriting process for income protection insurance, this insurance usually carries a
greater chance of a successful claim.
Whilst both cover you against illness & disability, an income protection plan will not cover you against
redundancy / unemployment.
Income Protection will pay out for a much longer duration than asu which could make it more suitable
should you become seriously ill or disabled as asu will only pay for 1 - 2 years dependent upon your insurance
provider and policy details.
