What is Income Protection & Do I Need It?

Your ability to earn an income is generally your greatest asset – have you protected it? Imagine you suffered a illness that required an extended amount of time away from work. Would your family survive without your income? Could you continue paying the bills? How long would your emergency savings last? In times like these, Income Protection is invaluable.

Remember, ACC only pays if you require time off work due to an accident.

With Income Protection you can insure a percentage of your income so that if you become ill and cannot continue to work, your insurer would make monthly payments to you until you could either return to work or until the end of your payment term, whichever is first.
