Family Income Benefit

Protect the future you’re building with a Family Income Benefit policy to look after your loved ones. Policies can extend for up to 30 years because your family’s future is in your hands now.

What Is Family Income Benefit?

A family income benefit policy is a type of term life insurance policy. Family income benefit pays a regular fixed amount instead. 

The payments are monthly and tax-free. The payments would start when you pass away and would continue until the end of the policy. 

Family income benefit provides a reassuring level of stable income for your family for up to 30 years.

Why choose This Life Insurance Policy?

Family income benefit can be an attractive option because of the stability it offers. Instead of the stress of a large lump sum payment followed by a big drop-off in income, family income  benefit cover provides your loved ones with a steady income for years.

Family life insurance, such as this income benefit, can help your family remain financially independent even after you pass away. Income protection insurance features guaranteed premiums, regular tax free income, and gives your family financial security even after a tragedy.

How Does Family
Income Benefit
Work?

A family income benefit policy is like term life policies because they both have a fixed payout amount and a fixed term. The difference is in the payout method. Term life insurance policies pay out a lump sum to the beneficiaries. Family income cover provides a regular income for the duration of the policy term. 

As an example, here’s what might happen with these two kinds of life insurance policies:

Another way these policies are alike is how the insurer decides the cost. Risk factors such as age, lifestyle, and health are all considered. It is similar to standard life insurance regarding choosing term and level of cover. Factors that affect the cost are all the same too i.e. health and lifestyle, BMI and smoking status etc.
