Why have income protection?
Income protection gives you a regular monthly payment if you’re unable to work due to sickness or injury. So you can focus on getting better without worrying about your finances.
If the answer is no, you should consider income protection.
- Income protection and superannuation
While some super funds do offer income protection, many don’t. So it’s important to check whether your super provides income protection and how much it offers. According to consumer watchdog CHOICE*, income protection through super often has fewer features and less flexibility than a policy outside super.
With NRMA Income Protection, you’re in control. You choose your level of cover, the waiting period and payout period. You can even select from a great range of optional extras — so you can be sure your lifestyle is protected.

|If you have income protection through your super, check to see:
- How much cover do I need?
To work out how much cover you need, think about:
With NRMA Income Protection, you could receive up to 85% of your pre-tax income up to $10,000 per month depending on your level of cover. If your circumstances change, you can apply to adjust your cover at any time.
- Your income
- The cost of your mortgage or rent, plus any other debts you have
- Your family’s monthly expenses
- Any quarterly or annual expenses like school fees and rates
|Think about it|
While many people think it won’t happen to them, the fact is, sickness and injury is more common than most of us realise. It’s been estimated that more than 60% of Australians will be disabled for more than one month during their working life*. So it’s worth thinking about how you would manage if it happened to you and your family.
