What Is Salary Protection Insurance and Why You Need It

You work hard your entire life to ensure that your loved ones get the best of everything. Why not help them with the same, when you are not around with salary protection insurance? Salary protection insurance, also known as income protection insurance, is a financial product that safeguards your family members in your absence.

Here are a few reasons why you might need salary protection insurance.

1. Salary protection insurance secures your loved ones in your absence.

If you earn a regular income and have family members dependent on it for their living, salary protection is the perfect solution. It ensures that they do not have to look for other ways to make ends meet in your absence. It does this by providing a guaranteed payout on your demise that helps them stay afloat during turbulent times. Moreover, it aids them in fulfilling life’s milestones like:

  • paying for a child’s education or marriage
  • adding to funds for a spouse’s retirement
  • buying a new home/ setting up a business
  • paying off any debts/ loans left by you

2. Salary protection insurance helps maintain the lifestyle of your loved ones.

Apart from giving a fixed payout on your demise, salary protection insurance also gives out regular payouts that help your family maintain their usual standard of living. With it, they do not have to compromise on their spending. Moreover, these steady payouts take off the burden of managing a lump sum amount and prevent a large pool of funds from running out quickly. Small and regular income payouts help to make it easy to manage money and meet needs from time to time.

3. Salary protection insurance keeps up with the times and fights inflation.

With salary protection insurance, you do not have to worry about your invested money remaining dormant. At the end of each policy year, the payout increases by a fixed percentage with the effect of compounding. This increase is generally around 5% - 6%, depending on the insurance company. It counters inflation and gives your loved ones the benefit of receiving the present value of money.

❏ The total death benefit amount and increased monthly payouts are 10 times the annual premium, or;

❏ 105% of the total premiums paid until the date of the insured’s demise

➢ A monthly income payout of the remaining benefit amount/ sum assured
