How Much Income Protection Do You Need?

You and your family are unique - and 'family' means something different to everyone. So your Income Protection needs are unique as well.

There is no set amount of Income Protection insurance everyone should have. The amount you may need is calculated based on a number of factors.

The maximum you can usually insure yourself for is 80% of your pre-tax salary.

Have a chat to your financial adviser - they'll be able to understand your individual circumstances, and then make sure you have the right amount of cover and the right policy to meet your unique needs.

How much is enough?
To understand your needs, a financial adviser will ask you some questions, so it's time to start thinking about the future (go on, it's fun!).
-     What does the future look like for you and your family?
-     What plans are you making together - that you don't want to have to break due to finances?
-     Do you have plans to put your children through university, take holidays or buy an investment property?
-     How much does your family's lifestyle cost you each month - bills, mortgage payments, kids activities?
-     Do you have savings that you could easily access if you needed them?

Once you've started painting the picture of your family's future and the costs involved in raising a family and reaching your goals, you'll start to get an idea of how important insurance is to cover those needs!

Tip: Income Protection premiums are generally tax deductible - making Income Protection cover even more affordable. Speak to your financial adviser for more information about tax-effective insurance strategies.
