Income Protection Insurance Solved™ with Budget Direct
Monthly payments if sickness or injury stop your income
If you suffer an illness or become injured and are unable to work and your claim is accepted, you will receive monthly benefits in arrears to help replace your lost income. You can select a waiting period that suits you. Income Protection cover lets you focus on your recovery, rather than the day-to-day expenses.
Optional benefit period
You can choose between benefit periods of 2 years or 5 years. This is the period for which benefits are payable if you are disabled by illness or injury, and are unable to work during that period.
Rehabilitation and retraining support
If you suffer an illness or become injured and are unable to work, once your claim is accepted and you meet the waiting period you will receive monthly benefits, in arrears. This benefit aims to help give you the best chance at being ready to work once you’ve recovered.
Vocational transition program benefit
If you are receiving monthly benefit payments, we may pay for vocational retraining costs to assist your transition to an occupation you have work capacity in, if you’re unable to return to your regular occupation.
Waived premiums if you claim
If you are receiving monthly benefits, we’ll waive your Income Protection Insurance premiums for the period the claim payments relate to.
