Helping protect the lifestyles of Kiwis
Are you protecting your most valuable asset? If an accident or injury prevents you from working, income protection insurance will give you peace of mind.
WHY DO YOU NEED INCOME PROTECTION INSURANCE?
Your income is your most valuable asset. Income Protection insurance may give you a monthly payment to cover lost income from disability as a result of illness or injury.
If you got sick and couldn’t work, how would you continue to pay your mortgage or rent? And how about your other expenses like groceries and utilities? Do you have enough sick leave to cover you for a long recovery? Claims on Income Protection can last many months and sometimes even years.
Give yourself peace of mind and protect your income now. Talk to our SBS Insurance advisers today about our flexible Income Protection solutions.

Income Protection Insurance may cover you in the event of:
An accident or illness which stops you from working for longer than your chosen stand-down period.
It can help you pay the bills, your mortgage or your children’s education bills by maintaining a regular income while you are unable to work and recovering.
Some policies can also cover you if you are required to look after a spouse or dependant for an accident or illness.
