Extended Income Protection

Cover that goes even further

What is it?

Once you have Temporary Income Protection from Bidvest Life you can add Extended Income Protection. This pays out up to 100% of your insured income until retirement in the event of a long-term injury or illness, even if you’re not permanently disabled. 

How does it work?

With Extended Income Protection from Bidvest Life, your payments will start at the end of your Temporary Income Protection benefit term (the period for which a claim will be paid) of 3, 6, 12, or 24 months.
