What is Income Protection
It makes sense to insure your home, your car and your family against the unexpected. But what about your income?
What if you were to suffer an accident or long-term illness that prevented you from earning a living? Income Protection is designed to provide you with an alternative income if you suffer an illness or injury, which prevents you from working. It’s different from Health insurance – it’s insurance for daily living. When illness or injury leave you unable to work you need the financial security of a product that keeps you on top of the bills that matter: mortgage payments, car loans, food bills, rent and more. After all, your income pays for everything. Income protection helps take care of your financial needs while you are focusing on recovery at a time when money worries should be the last thing on your mind.
