Taking care of you with certainty

What is it?

Income protection is insurance for your income or salary. If you are diagnosed with a listed illness, Critical Illness Income from Bidvest Life boosts your Temporary Income Protection benefit by an extra 30% and pays out for up to 12 months.

How does it work?

If you have Temporary Income Protection from Bidvest Life, you can add Critical Illness Income. If you are diagnosed with a listed illness, we will pay out 130% of the sum of your insured monthly income for up to 12 months. 

Why you need it

Receiving monthly payments, whether you work or not, gives you the peace of mind to focus on your recovery and recuperation. The extra 30% pay-out is there to assist with the extra monthly costs that often arise due to lifestyle changes and the cost of living with a serious illness.
