Income Protection.

Income Protection allows you to cover your expenses and maintain your lifestyle if you are unable to work for several months, a year or longer.

Premiums are tax deductible.

According to recent studies, 83% of Australians have car insurance1 , but only 31% have income protection2. What is more important, your ability to drive or your ability to generate an income?

We all know how important a regular income is in maintaining our lifestyle and of those close to us. What really are the chances of having that taken away from us?

What are the Chances?

A car being stolen and not recovered? 1 in 9093
Having to claim on a home &/or contents policy? 1 in 134
Becoming disabled for more than 3 months before age 65 and having no income? 1 in 35
Suffering from cancer before the age of 75? 1 in 3 for men,
1 in 4 for women6

Most people would not think twice about insuring their home and car. However, many have not even considered protecting their most important asset, themselves.

Elaine is a 53-year-old high-flying executive earning $370,000 per year.  She is single and has no children.  Three years ago, Elaine started her own consultancy business.  She has her own home valued at $1.5m with a mortgage of $750k.  She also has a share portfolio valued $200,000, with a margin lending debt of $80,000.

Elaine goes for her scheduled mammogram and is diagnosed with early stage breast cancer.  She is unable to work whilst she is having chemotherapy, with the chemotherapy to continue for a period of 6 months.

Elaine is one of the lucky ones.  She was diagnosed early and by having income protection insurance in place, she:

  1. received monthly benefits of up to 75% of her usual salary, which enabled her to keep up with the interest payments on her debts;
  2. was covered for some of her mother’s travel and accommodation expenses, given her mother had travelled from overseas to be with Elaine during her treatment; and
  3. was able to focus on her treatment and recovery, whilst not having to worry about a loss of income during her recuperation.
