Income Protection

What is your greatest asset? Most people typically respond that it is their home or their investments ; however, your greatest asset is actually your ability to earn an income. Protecting your ability to earn an income should be a high priority.
Income insurance provides you with a replacement of up to 75% of your income if you are unable to work due to sickness or injury. Income insurance may also be available as part of your work or personal superannuation plan.

Business Expense Insurance

Business Expenses insurance can provide your business with a basic payment if something stops you from earning your business an income, such as sickness or injury.
This insurance will help your business pay critical day-to-day expenses. You can use this money to:

  • Pay for your business' rent, electricity, water or gas
  • Pay for employees' salaries and the cost of a medical locum (where fees incurred exceed the income generated)
  • Make regular business loan repayments

You can package your Business Expenses Income Plan with your Income Protection insurance.
