Income protection cover
Why is income protection important?
Having Income protection can become invaluable at these times. This cover gives you peace of mind by providing regular monthly payments for a certain length of time to help you keep your life on track if something unexpected happens.
Major head trauma, serious burns, and permanent blindness are among the illnesses and injuries, as are malignancies, heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s, and major organ transplants.
Keep in mind that different trauma insurance policies may cover different conditions, and your condition must fulfil severity standards in most circumstances.
Trauma cover is essential to make sure a medical emergency doesn’t turn into a financial emergency as well.
Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Cover
Total Permanent Disability Insurance cover pays you a lump sum payout, allowing you to access medical and rehabilitative therapies while also offering you financial security so you may continue to live your life to the fullest.
What does Total and Permanent disability insurance cover?
- Anyone who is expected to recover is not considered permanently impaired. As a result, they are not eligible for coverage.
- Milder conditions may also be overlooked when filing a claim. A loss of a finger, for example, may not be severe enough to prevent you from working. However, a limited benefit may be available for such an injury (e.g. 20 percent of a full payout).
TPD Insurance is available to anyone, however, the success of your application is contingent on a number of factors. Pre-existing medical issues, for example, may prevent you from obtaining coverage.
Regarding the policy, If you don’t choose a beneficiary, the money is distributed by the super trustee or your estate.
Life cover may also include coverage for terminal illnesses. If you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness with a short life expectancy, you’ll receive a lump-sum payment.
How much life cover do you need?
Consider how much money you or your family would lose if you didn’t have life insurance:
- You might need to pay off the mortgage, credit cards, and other debts, as well as child care, school fees, and continuous living expenses
Also think of the funds your family would receive from super, savings, the sale of any investments, your paid leave balance, and extended family support.
The quantity of coverage you should get varies depending on how much cover you would need.
