Disability Income Protection Insurance benefits are normally paid as a monthly income for the duration of your disability .. rather than as a lump sum.
Disability Income Protection Insurance policies typically limit the amount of cover you can purchase to around 75% of your total monthly personal exertion income.

Comparing Income Insurance

Disability Income Protection Insurance policies vary greatly from company to company ... not just in price, but in features, benefits, options, flexibility ... and even in their definitions.
