Income Protection Insurance
Income Protection insurance provides a regular, usually monthly, benefit if you are off work due to sickness or injury. This benefit is typically up to a percentage, say 75%, of your pre-disability income (net of business expenses but before tax) at the time of making a claim. If the Income Protection insurance policy is terminated at any time the Income Protection insurance policy does not have a cash value and you will not get anything back.
