Income is usually a person’s most important asset, and protecting it is not something that should be taken lightly.
What would you do if you were made redundant or became sick or injured in an accident and your income stopped tomorrow? Would you be able to meet your mortgage repayments? What about paying the bills and providing for the needs of your family?
Income protection cover bridges the gap when you can’t work and helps make sure your family are looked after until you can work again.
On average it is estimated that most New Zealand households would run out of money if the main income stopped, within only three weeks! Illnesses and accidents are common reasons for people to lose their income.
