Why Income Protection Is Most Important?

When times are tough families need to consider their personal insurance before insuring their homes. Statistics has shown that workers are 200 times more likely to be out of work due to illness or accident than to have a house fire. Statistics have also shown that only 20% of workers have income protection.

Income Protection is Affordable

Unlike other forms of personal risk insurance, Income Protection premiums are tax deductible for most taxpayers. The after tax cost of the cover can therefore be significantly less than the cost of the premium.

Income Protection is now available through superannuation, so there are no added costs to the monthly budget.

Taking out Income Protection is not as expensive as people might think. Below is a rough estimate of how much Income Protection will cost for a non smoker:

AGE Income Monthly Benefit Gender Monthly Premium
