Income Protection fees

Financial stability for you and your family

Income Protection insurance is optional. It provides you and your family with a monthly income in the event that you can’t work due to partial disability or disability. Each unit of income protection cover provides a benefit of $5,200 per annum (before tax) and is payable for up to two years.

Like Death and TPD insurance, Income Protection insurance fees are paid through your REI Super account and not from your bank account. 

Options on waiting periods

We now offer new waiting periods of 30, 60 or 90 days.
