Income Protection, also known as Salary Continuance, is one of the most important measures you can put in place to protect your lifestyle.
Ask yourself these questions:
What percentage of your income is currently being allocated to securing your income for AFTER your working life? For most people it is the 9.5% of salary paid into super by their employer.
What percentage of your income is currently being allocated to securing your income for DURING your working life? For most people the answer is 0%
If we think of a working life and after working life income stream which of these income streams is most important? – AFTER your working life or DURING your working life
You may be interested to know that over the last 12 months my new protection clients have typically deemed it appropriate to allocate somewhere between 4% and 5% towards securing their income during their working life.
Do you think that might be an appropriate allocation of funds on your part?
This what an Income Protection Package is all about. Making sure that you can secure your income throughout your working life, to make sure that you do have a reasonable income after your working life.
