nib Income Protection Insurance is not like other income protection policies. Because everyone’s circumstances are different, nib offers different types and levels of cover, depending on your needs.
What all nib policies have in common however is:
nib Income Protection Insurance can be tailored to suit your budget and your particular needs. For instance, you can choose between waiting periods of 14 and 28 days. You can also choose the length of the payout period, with the option of 6, 12 or 24 months.
If you have accrued sick pay or personal savings that could tide you over in the initial period of your illness, opting for the longer waiting period can reduce your premiums.
nib Income Protection Insurance is so flexible you can even get basic cover if you don’t qualify for normal income protection, due to your health, lifestyle or occupation. Basic cover is also ideal for students, stay-at-home parents or the self-employed, as it allows you to protect your income for up to $7,500 a month if you’re working full time and up to $3,000 a month if you work less than 20 hours a week.
The flexibility of nib Income Protection Insurance allows you to protect your income from the unexpected by choosing a policy that exactly suits your budget and your way of life.
As well as enjoying the benefits of nib Income Protection, such as choosing shorter waiting times and a choice of payout periods, you also have the option of extending your cover to include the following features:
As the name suggests, Permanent Disability cover provides you with additional protection in the event that your injury or illness leaves you permanently disabled. You can select a benefit amount anywhere between $50,000 and $500,000. There is a six month waiting period on this option.
Whether or not you choose to include Involuntary Unemployment or Permanent Disability cover, the amount of your overall premium charged will be based on a range of factors.
The amount of your premium will also depend on how often you choose to pay it, with the option of fortnightly, monthly, quarterly or annual payments. It’s worth noting that if you choose to pay up front and annually, nib offers an extra incentive, with one month’s free cover included every year.
At the end of the day, how much you pay for nib Income Protection Insurance is entirely up to you, as you can select a level of cover that suits your budget and your needs. It’s flexible cover that puts income protection within everyone’s reach, no matter who they are.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
