Why do you need Personal Accident & Sickness (Income Protection)?
Whilst we readily identify the need to insure our cars and homes it’s easy to forget that our most important asset is our income and it needs protection also from injury or sickness preventing us from earning an income. Personal Accident & Sickness provides a weekly benefit to maintain our households and pay all the bills that continue when income doesn’t.
Many of us can envisage getting injured but don’t recognise the greater potential of becoming ill. Our needs vary in respect to the cover required and the policy includes options to cover the self-employed who need cover 24/7, the employed who seek workers compensation top up cover (benefit to fill any gap benefit workers compensation benefit and selected weekly benefit) and outside working hours only.
Cover also includes option to include total permanent disablement (TPD) and death by accident.
