What is income protection cover?
It provides an income if you’re unable to work due to illness, impairment or disability
Most people plan and dream based on the assumption that they’ll continue to earn an income until they retire. But what if something happens to you and you’re unable to work? Income certainty determines your quality of life and your family’s financial security.
Without an income you would be left struggling to pay for your financial expenses like school fees or bond repayments. Income protection cover will give you peace of mind that your financial expenses will be taken care of.
How does income protection cover work?
Offers protection when you're permanently or temporarily unable to work in your current occupation.
If a broken leg keeps you from work for 3 months, for example, you must still pay the bills and get the children to school. Income protection cover can help you to do that.
Myriad complete income protector benefit will pay up to 100% of your income for up to 24 months, depending on the cover period you choose, or until you recover. If you’re permanently unable to work, we will pay up to 100% of your net income until you retire.
