Get tailored income protection ranging from R2,000 to R150,000 at an affordable monthly premium that’s set based on your unique risk profile.

Income protection explained

We all use our salaries to cover our home and car loans, our car and medical insurance, as well as everyday necessities like groceries and petrol. So what would happen if we lost our income for whatever reason?

While some people may have an emergency fund in place or some form of cash reserves, this may not be sufficient for a longer time period and may also cause you to lose out on hitting your savings and retirement plan goals. Income protection is an insurance product that will cover you in the event that your income is disrupted as a result of illness, disability, or retrenchment.

Momentum’s Myriad Income protector benefit

Momentum’s Myriad complete income protector benefit will provide you with up to 100% of your monthly salary for up to a period of 24 months if you’re unable to work as a result of an injury or illness.

If you are permanently unable to get back to work, Momentum will pay out up to 100% of your salary until you reach retirement. All payouts are completely tax-free and you can adjust your cover as and when needed as your circumstances change.

Retirement age and your cover

You can remain fully covered for as long as you maintain the insurance premium payments or until you retire which can be at age 55, 60, 65, or 70 years of age.

Adjusting your Income protection plan

Depending on which plan you choose, your cover amount could increase on an annual basis or remain at a fixed amount that you select at the inception of the insurance policy. You can also make adjustments as per your changing needs and goals by contacting Momentum.
