You are 31 years old and you have Income Protection for $3,000. If you broke your spine while skiing and your Income Protection Insurance is structured with 13 weeks of waiting period – it means you are not going to get any money from AMP or Asteron policies for 13 weeks while Fidelity Income cover would provide you with two monthly payments. If your health situation become worse and you end up in the wheel chair, your Income Cover, after waiting period (which can be 2,4,8,13,26,52,104 weeks), is going to provide you with:
- For 2 years – $72,000
- For 5 years – $180,000
- Till you are 65 years old – 1,224,000
If you are 32, insured for $3,000 till the age of 65 your income cover would provide you with $1,188,000
If you are 33, same as above insured for $3,000 till the age of 65 your income protection will pay you $1,152,000
If you are 34 today and your income cover is for $3,000 monthly benefit till you are 65 years old the policy will pay you $1,116,000
