Income Protection Insurance pays a monthly benefit of up to 75% of your regular before-tax income if you can’t work due to a serious illness or injury.

It’s a smart way to keep your mortgage, rent and other expenses paid until you can return to work. It’s even smarter when you buy directly from NobleOak – with high cover levels, fully underwritten cover and no upfront commissions.

Income Protection Insurance FAQs

Find out more about our award winning Income Protection Insurance, from initial quote through to claims, we’re with you all the way.


What is Income Protection Insurance?

Income Protection Insurance pays a monthly benefit if the insured person becomes unable to work due to a serious illness or injury. That money can be used to pay for general costs of living, including mortgage or rent expenses, groceries and childcare or school fees.

How does Income Protection Insurance work?

You can apply for Income Protection Insurance as stand-alone cover, or bundle it with other cover types – including Life Cover, Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Insurance and Trauma Insurance. Once you are accepted for Income Protection Insurance, we guarantee to renew your cover every year to age 65, as long as your premiums are paid.

How is my premium calculated?

Your premium is calculated based on your age and gender, occupation, level of cover, and your answers to the health and lifestyle questions we ask when you apply. It’s tailored to you, so you don’t have to worry about paying more to compensate for other people’s risks.

What details do I have to provide to assist with the application process?

If you have copies of any of your recent medical records or, blood test results and details of any prescription medicines you are taking, this will speed up the application and assessment process. Many clients are able to answer all of the questions in our application without additional requirements.

Are there any pre-existing condition exclusions in my cover that could come out at claim time?

No, all NobleOak applications are fully underwritten at the time you take the cover out.

As long as you fully and correctly disclose your medical history and other details in the application, your claim will be assessed based on this information and processed efficiently. Apart from the industry standard 13 month self harm / attempted suicide exclusion, there are no other pre-built in exclusions in a NobleOak Life Insurance cover.

If any Special Acceptance Terms are imposed on your cover, we tell you about these at the time of your initial assessment (underwriting stage) and formally agree these with you prior to issuing your cover. We firmly believe this is the best way to provide Income Protection Insurance, as it provides more certainty and clarity for you and your family.
