But what would happen if you got sick or injured and couldn't work? Would you be able to support yourself and your family while you recover?

Yes, simply call us on 132 825 and we’ll help adjust your cover. When you call, we may ask some more information about your health and lifestyle.

Please note, if you increase your level of cover, your premiums may also go up.

Income Protection premiums are generally tax deductible. However, your claim payments are usually taxed as part of your personal income.

Please check with your accountant to ensure this applies to your own tax situation.

While some super funds offer Income Protection, many don’t. It’s important to check whether your super includes Income Protection and how much it offers, as some may not give you the level of cover you need.

With NRMA Income Protection, you’re in control. You choose your level of cover, and the waiting and payout period. You can even select optional extras for a little extra cover where you need it, such as Involuntary Unemployment Cover.

If you have Income protection through your Super, check to see:

  • If you can choose how long you’d like to be paid for
  • How much cover it provides
  • How much time must past, before you get paid
