Frequently Asked Questions

What is Income Protection Insurance?

Often referred to as IP, Income Protection is a Life Insurance product which is designed to provide regular payments for a specified period to replace some of your income when you can’t work due to a serious illness or injury. The monthly benefit covers up to 75% of any pre-tax income (subject to an overall maximum benefit of $25,000 per month). To be eligible for IP Cover, you need to be an Australian resident and aged between 18 and 59.

How long should my waiting period and benefit period be?

The waiting period is the length of time before you become eligible to receive your monthly benefit, and the benefit period is the maximum length of time you will receive payments for. At NobleOak, the waiting period for IP is either 30 days or 90 days and the benefit period is either 2 years or to age 65.

If you choose 90 days for your waiting period instead of 30 days, your Income Protection premiums will be lower. Similarly, if you choose a benefit period of 2 years, your premiums will be lower than if you had chosen a period up until age 65.

Is Income Protection tax deductable?

IP premiums are generally tax-deductible. If you have a policy that includes another life insurance product with NobleOak, you may only claim a tax deduction for premiums paid for the IP component. If IP Cover is taken out through an Industry or Retail superannuation fund, and premiums are deducted from your super contributions, these premiums cannot be claimed as a tax deduction.

Do I need Life Insurance and Income Protection?

These two products are designed to safeguard you and your family’s financial future in different ways. They provide cover for varying situations, so it’s important to carefully consider your particular circumstances and situation when deciding upon what types of insurance cover you need, and to assess your suitability and eligibility for both options before starting an application.

How can I apply for cover?

You can apply for IP Cover by obtaining a quote online or by speaking to a member of the NobleOak team over the phone. We can’t provide personal advice, although we can offer general information to guide you through the process. If you know what level of cover you need, we can proceed with your application straight away.
