Disability and trauma protection insurance

Developing a life-threatening illness or injury can take its toll on your physical and mental state. Modern advances in medical treatment mean the chances of surviving are much higher – however a diagnosis brings increased stress, lengthy treatment and time away from work commitments. Trauma cover will help you get through this tough time with:

  • A lump sum payment to be paid if you suffer a serious illness to ensure you can cope with the consequential effects on your lifestyle, family and work.
  • A monthly income can be paid to you and your family in the event you suffer from a specified critical illness or injury.
  • Trauma related income cover means that up to 75% of your gross income can be paid as a monthly installment until you reach age 65.
