Income Protection Insurance
What is income protection?
Everyone has a different reason for taking out income protection. Income protection can cover up to 70% of your monthly income for a defined period of time if you suffer a loss of income due to sickness or injury, which may help you focus on getting back on your feet.

Key features and benefits
Maximum benefit amount
Your TAL policy can cover up to 70% of your monthly income. You can get a quote online for cover up to $10,000 per month. For cover up to a maximum benefit of $30,000 per month, call TAL on 1300 345 620.
This is the time between being unable to earn an income before receiving benefits. TAL policies offer waiting periods of 4, 8, 13 or 26 weeks.
This is how long you'll receive payments for whilst you're unable to earn an income and could be 1, 2, 5 years or up to 65 years depending on policy type.
Premiums could be tax deductible
Since your premiums are directly related to your work, they could be tax deductible. Check with your accountant or the ATO to ensure you're eligible.
All of the above features may have restrictions or conditions. You should read the PDS on TAL's website to understand how it may apply to you.
