The case for prioritizing protection of your Income:
When we think about how our future depends on our ability to continue earning an income, the thought of being unable to do our normal jobs or in fact, work in any capacity, should prompt us to ask the questions:
- How can I protect my most valuable asset?
- How can I protect the assets I have accumulated from being eroded by mounting expenses?
Providing you are under age 50 for the Bonus plan or 55 for the others, the most cost effective way we know to address these twin issues, is via Income Protection Insurance, which in the case of your becoming totally disabled due to accident, or as we age, increasingly illness, will provide a monthly income benefit.
There is a waiting period during you have to prove you are disabled and given that most long term disabilities become apparent within 3 months, most people choose the 90 day option.
FWD provides four different kinds of disability plan:
- Flexi Plan: Offering a stepped premium increases evey 5 years
- Level Plan: Offering a level premium til age 65
- Bonus Plan: Returning to you all the premiums paid IF you retain cover until age 65
- Office Plan: Like the Flexi plan this is a stepped premium plan but differs in the sense it is designed for self employed people
