Income Protection Insurance

Ensure you can keep living your life even when you’re not earning.

Income protection provides  regular payments whilst you’re unable to work. Most New Zealanders are only entitled to ten paid sick days a year, so long term sickness or disability poses a real threat to your financial well being.

Whether you work for someone else or own a business, illness, income and disability cover can take care of debt repayments whilst you recover.

Between the ages of 30 and 65, 2 out of 5 people will be unable to work for 6 months or more due to sickness or as a result of an accident.

You can use your regular payment to spend however you want, whether it simply helps towards rent, bills and everyday essentials or paying for alternative treatments. We can help design a plan that best suits you and your family’s needs, and that helps reduce the stress while you’re recovering.

Is income protection for you?

If you know you’ll need help with the day-to-day bills and expenses if anything were to happen then it’s a good time to consider getting income protection insurance.

Here are some of the reasons why our customers purchase income protection:

  • They have mortgage payments to cover as well as bills to pay.
  • They have credit card debt and outstanding payments and are concerned that if they weren’t receiving a regular income then they wouldn’t be able to pay the minimum payments. This could make their financial situation unmanageable.

They have a family and are concerned that if they didn’t have a regular income then their family would suffer the financial burden.

Still need convincing, in this blog Richard explains the key elements on income protection insurance.

  • We first opened our door to Richard some 8 years ago now. We found Richard to be genuine, straight to the point but not over bearing nor abrupt. We were looking at changing up our insurances to find something that suited our family and finances better. Richard put us straight on the right path. We find him reliable, honest and easy to chat with. Richard has also given us fantastic financial advice which has helped us save for the future. We have recommended his business to our friends before and will do again happily in the future.
