Income Protection is designed to help you get back on your feet, covering 75% of your monthly income up to $10,000/month if you’re unable to work due to sickness or injury. We’ll pay a monthly benefit into your bank account or credit card so you’re able to stay on top of bills and maintain your lifestyle while focusing on your recovery.
Adding optional redundancy cover could help extend your AAMI cover by having a benefit that pays out 75% of your income up to $4,000/month for up to three months while you are out of work due to involuntary unemployment. A no claim period and a waiting period apply to this benefit.
It’s up to you how you use your monthly payment, it might help cover:

For the Redundancy Benefit, you can be paid for up to 3 months on any one claim, as long as you continue to be involuntarily unemployed during that time.
For the Disability Benefit, it depends on the benefit period you have chosen. Each time you make a claim that’s accepted, you can be paid for up to 1-2 years, as long as you’re still unable to work due to the sickness or injury during that time.
You can claim as many times as you need over the life of the policy. The payment of benefits is subject to the relevant terms that apply to your policy, including any exclusions or limitations – check out the Life Insurance PDS to find out more.
We’re sorry you’re thinking of cancelling. For policy cancellations or to discuss your situation further, please call us on 13 22 44. If you do cancel, you may qualify for a refund for the unexpired portion of the premium less our cancellation fee and any non-refundable government charges (if applicable).
Most of the time, income protection premiums are tax deductible if you’re working (depending on a few individual circumstances). That means at tax time you may be able to claim your premium as a deduction and potentially save money.
If you suffer from the same or related sickness or injury that you have previously claimed for within 6 months of your last benefit being payable, we will recommence benefit payments without applying a new waiting period. These benefits will be added to the remaining benefit period to ensure the maximum payment under the benefit period is not exceeded. If you’ve made a full recovery in between claims then you will commence a new claim and the benefit period will restart.
