Have you considered how you would cover expenses and make ends meet if you were unable to work for an extended period of time due to an accident or illness?
Mortgage and car repayments, children’s expenses and general living costs still need to be maintained, no matter what happened to you or the reason you couldn’t continue to earn an income.
Think about it. Just how long would you be able to maintain your regular expenses if you no longer had your regular salary or wage? What would you have to sacrifice? What possessions or property would you have to sell? And how long could you keep it up in the long-term?
Income protection insurance is designed specifically to protect you from financial hardship if you are unable to work as a result of sickness or injury. It will allow you to replace up to 75% of your income for a specified time, or until you return to your employment. It can be the difference between staying afloat, or suffering significant financial hardship in these circumstances.

We only use the most reputable insurance companies and we’ll ensure you have a first-class policy at a price that is right for you.
