The global pandemic has dramatically changed the economic and working life of many Australians.

The majority of people have to stay inside their houses, and they can’t go out and work. Some people are working from home, but not all are fortunate enough, with many people sadly losing their jobs. Small businesses have suffered a lot; most of them related to travel, food, and hospitality industries and some have shut down as they could not survive the hard-hit of the coronavirus.

In this situation, it might be difficult for you to take care of your family. Your children do not go to school, but you still have to pay the fees. You have to buy groceries, pay bills, and mortgages. And most importantly, save because we don’t know when life is going to be normal again.

In a time of crisis, income protection insurance is something that can help you. Income protection pays up to 85% of your income if you are unable to work due to illness or injury. Income protection policies also gives additional benefits like inflation protection and even a small redundancy benefit. Although you would not receive a full income protection benefit due to redundancy, it is only an additional benefit that is usually quite specific in what it would reimburse you for.

The key trigger for a claim under income protection is disablement (injury or illness) that prevents you from working.

People who are working from home may think they are financially secured, and they don’t need income protection insurance, but that is not the case.
