What is Income Protection Insurance?
Your income is often your biggest asset and losing it can turn life upside down. If you’re unable to work—either temporarily or permanently—because you’re sick or injured, Income Protection Insurance will provide you with money to live on as a monthly payment while you’re not receiving your salary or wage.
