What happens if your income stopped tomorrow?
You need to be safe in the knowledge that should the unexpected happen, you and your family will be protected. Income protection insurance replaces the income lost due to your inability to work because of sickness or injury.
If you were not earning an income for an extended period of time, could you afford the following costs?
- Your mortgage?
- Your car insurance, service and rego?
- Your land and water rates?
- Your telephone costs?
- Gas and electricity?
- Your health insurance?
- Out of pocket medical costs?
- Your children’s education and activities?
Even a few months of no income could put serious pressure on your financial position and put unwanted stress and strain on you and your relationships. You need peace of mind that you have a regular income to cover the many daily expenses.
Income protection insurance, also known as salary continuance can help to alleviate the pressure when you are unable to work for a certain amount of time.
