Income protection insurance takes care of you and your family if you become unable to work due to an accident, illness or injury. Income protection insurance pays you monthly payments to help account for lost income and assist with expenses and other financial commitments as you recover from your illness or injury.
Income Protection provides a monthly payment to replace a portion of your income if you have an illness or injury and are unable to work. You have three options to choose from in this category: Agreed Value, Indemnity or Loss of Earnings.
This cover provides a monthly payment to replace your mortgage or rent payments, should you suffer an illness or injury and are unable to work. Mortgage and Income Protection doesn't have ACC offsets. This means in case of an accident, anything paid by ACC to compensate your income will not be deducted from your Mortgage and Income Protection benefit payments.
You will receive a monthly benefit payment less offsets monthly in advance from the end of the waiting period and until you are no longer totally disabled or the benefit or cover term ends.
You will be paid a benefit monthly in arrears if you become partially disabled.
If you move from a total to partial disability benefit, this pays a lump sum equal to one third of the final monthly total disability benefit to help cover costs during the transition period.
If you have Income Protection, when you move from being totally disabled to partially disabled you can receive a monthly top-up payment of either 25% of the Partial Disability Income Benefit (or one twelfth of the benefit amount less the PDIB, whichever is lower, for up to 12 months while on claim). Not available with Mortgage and Income Protection policies.
One of AIA's dedicated case managers will work with you to understand your personal situation and will consider what assistance could aid your return to work or improve your capacity to work.
The waiting period will be waived if you become disabled again and it's caused by the same or a related illness or injury. This is subject to AIA's opinion after considering the advice of a registered medical practitioner and other relevant information.
This benefit is for the cost of a vocational assistance programme approved in advance by AIA if you're unlikely to return to your pre-disability occupation.
AIA may agree to pay you an additional lump sum payment of up to 12 times the monthly benefit amount to cover costs of buying specialised equipment or completing home alterations because of your total disability.
If during the waiting period you are confined to bed under fulltime care for more than three days and are in an occupation class other than five, AIA will pay a daily Bed Confinement Benefit.
You can apply to increase your sum assured at every third policy anniversary without providing any further medical information. Limits and conditions apply and every increase in cover will result in an increase in premium. Not available with Mortgage and Income Protection policies.
If you can return to work between 12 and 24 months after claiming we will pay you a lump-sum payment equivalent to three times your monthly benefit.
AIA will waive the premium for six consecutive months at any stage between the second trimester and six months after your pregnancy finishes. You can claim during this period.
If you have a waiting period of 26, 52 or 104 weeks, you can reduce this waiting period, without providing any further medical evidence, if your Business Overheads, Business Continuity, Locum Cover or Rural Continuity is cancelled due to the life assured no longer being actively involved in the business or the business is sold or the business is no longer actively trading.
If the life assured is disabled and able to receive a benefit under this policy, and you also hold Business Overheads, Business Protection, Locum Cover or Rural Disability Insurance, then the waiting periods applicable to the life assured under each policy will be served concurrently from the disablement date.
If you're outside New Zealand and suffer a total disability for the first time, you could access up to $10,000 towards the cost for you and a support person to return home.
Provides an additional benefit payment to cover the services of a carer for up to 6 months. This benefit is paid in arrears and to the person providing the care.
You could be entitled to reimbursement of the costs for additional childcare that you may need while you are totally or partially disabled for dependent child(ren) who are under the age of 14 years old.
If you have Mortgage and Income Protection you may choose to increase the sum assured if there has been one of the following events: an increase to an existing mortgage, the purchase of a new home, the purchase of a holiday home or the purchase of a bare block of land zoned as residential.
We will waive your premium payments, while your insurance remains in place when you are unable to work due to total disability. This benefit is compulsory when taking out any personal disability income policy and you'll incur an additional cost.
The flexibility to suspend your cover for up to 12 months, without medical evidence if you meet the following conditions: take parental leave, take leave without pay for any reason, get made redundant, become unemployed, experience at least a 20% reduction in pay (comparing the most recent payslip against a previous payslip from the same year), or are self-employed and experience a 30% reduction in revenue (by comparing one month's revenue against the same month for the previous year). No benefits will be payable for any claim event which occurs during this suspension period.
