Income Protection

Payment Protection Insurance

Payment Protection Insurance is a policy which covers the policyholder for the monthly instalments on their credit contract in the event that they suffer an insured event below. The policy cover options are specific to the policyholder's source of income at the time of entering into a Credit Contract. The benefits are payable directly to the financier. In the unfortunate event of death, PPI covers the outstanding balance on the loan.

  • The main risk with having finance is if something happens to your ability to earn money. PPI protects you, your family and your credit rating if the worst happens.
  • With only a minimum stand down period and generous cover for up to 60 months, PPI protection truly covers you for the unexpected at the time you need it most.
  • ACC only pays to a maximum of 80% of your income – How would your household react to an instant 20% pay cut?
  • Depending on your circumstances, you chose the level of cover.
