Only 20% of NZ'ers with Income Protection insurance!


We have seen the media coverage recently about the Financial Services Council study andresulting Insurance Gap report.  The report showed that while more than 95 percent of homes and cars are insured, only 57 percent of New Zealanders insure their lives and only 20 percent of New Zealanders have income protection insurance. This research also found New Zealanders understand why they need risk insurance, but don’t know how much they need, or feel confident about purchasing it.

Income protection is complex. In fact, there are so many ways to earn a living and live our lives that we need a wide range of income protection benefits to match the wide variety of client needs and affordability.  That's where we come in....our Advisers can analysize your role, financial commitments, goals and the predictability of your income and come up with the best solution to meet your needs. 

Income Protection provides monthly payments to give peace of mind and financial security when are out of action due to sickness, injury or redundancy. Income protection policies help put food on the table, petrol in the tank, assist with mortgage payments, keep school fees paid and generally give you the means to maintain a reasonable standard of living if you are not able to earn income.

The fact that only 20% of New Zealanders have income protection cover is scary....if you are one of those who don't contact your insurance adviser today for comprehensive advice on what is available to protect the greatest asset you own, your ability to earn.
