There are many possible variations within the policy and it makes sense to choose the options. Speak with our insurance specialist to find the right solution.Get a Quote
If you are injured or become ill, income protection insurance can act as a safety net by providing a steady source of cash equalling up to 75% of the income generated by your business due to your personal endeavour, less your share of expenses.
The regular benefits you receive through your income protection insurance can be used to pay your mortgage, living expenses, and even some of your medical costs that may not be covered by health insurance.
Income protection insurance can help you meet your financial obligations until you are able to return to work, helping reduce the stress during your recovery period.Get a Quote
