Your employment benefits may include something called Income Protection. An Income Protection plan provides a monthly amount to “replace” part or all of your monthly salary. Income Protection is payable if you are unable to work due to illness or accident. The payment normally starts if you are not able to return to work after a period of 13 weeks (or longer, depending on the conditions of your plan). If your employee benefit package does not include Income Protection cover, then you can buy this cover as a private individual. Please contact us if you need independent support or advice on this topic.
Your Group Life insurance plan provides a cash lump sum to your dependants in the event of your death during the period of your employment. The lump sum amount is calculated based on a multiple of your salary. Should you need additional coverage amounts or different type of life cover, please do not hesitate to contact us for independent support & advice.
