Did you know you’re more likely to be off work for an extended period of time, than you are to die before retirement?

As a professional, your ability to earn an income is your most important asset. Your financial security depends on it. If you’re unable to work due to illness or injury, having an income protection plan in place will allow you to carry on meeting your monthly financial commitments.

Knowing that you can rely on regular income regardless of the state of your health is enormously reassuring.

With Investec Life’s Income Protection Cover, if you’re off work or unable to perform your occupational duties due to an illness or injury, your income protection insurance makes a monthly payment to help replace up to 75% of your net of tax income.  This can be increased by up to an additional 25% with Investec Life’s Temporary Income TopUp Cover. And if you’re permanently unable to work, the benefit can be upgraded to cover up to 100% of your net of tax income.

Enhanced benefit: Temporary Income TopUp Cover*

Investec Life’s Temporary Income TopUp Cover is designed to enhance your Income Protection Cover benefit. This means that Investec Life will cover you for up to 100% of the net of tax income when you are temporarily unable to work for up to 24 months, or for the first 24 months of a non-permanent disability claim that lasts longer than 24 months.

*To qualify for Investec Life’s Temporary Income TopUp Cover, you will need to have (or already be in the process of applying for) Investec Life’s Income Protection Cover.

If you are unable to work due to illness or injury, Income Protection Cover ensures that you can meet your monthly financial commitments.

You can opt for Income Protection Cover as a standalone product from Investec Life, without Life Cover.

Insurance made for you

Tailored and priced for you as an Investec private client, this income protection plan replaces your lost income and allows you to pay for your family’s living expenses you’d ordinarily be paying for. The cover also means you can continue to invest for the future by allowing you to go on paying for your children’s education and saving for retirement.

Comprehensive cover

We base your payouts on objective medical criteria and consider your specific job-related duties. If you’re a self-employed professional, you may backdate your qualifying claims from the first day you’re off work.  

Are you self-employed?

If you are self-employed, Investec Life also offers Business Overheads Cover which protects you and your business against accumulating business expenses while you are unable to work.
