Start-Up Protection

Start-Up Income Protection is especially designed to protect you and your fledgling business during those crucial first three years. Talk to us today about how this cover will benefit you.

Start-Up Business Protection

 

Starting up a new business can be incredibly time consuming. Often, you will find yourself doing the work of several employees and putting in well over 40 hours each week. You are the most important part of your new company and if you become sick or injured and are forced to take time off, your business may not survive without you.

Start-Up Income Protection is especially designed for those who have been trading for less than three years. It will provide you with a monthly benefit if you are unable to work for more than 10 hours a week due to illness or injury. This will give your business cash flow when it needs it most, letting you hire a temporary replacement or giving yourself an income to live off while you focus on your recovery.

Tailored For The Needs Of Start-Up Businesses

Unlike traditional Income Protection policies which insure you for a percentage of your income, Start-Up Income Protection lets you nominate an amount of your choice. This means that you don’t have to prove your income – something that can be tricky when you are just starting out.

At Lifetime, we are particularly dedicated to helping new businesses. Beginnings are always exciting and we relish the opportunity to help you through every stage of launching your new company. We will also be able to help you as your business grows and your insurance needs change, giving you the right support when you need it.

Protect your investment. You have worked hard to get to this point in your career, don’t let one illness or injury derail your efforts. We have the tools to protect you against financial loss so you can focus on what’s important – growing and developing your new business.

Moving from the default ACC Cover Plus to ACC Cover Plus Extra might sound like an expensive exercise, but when topped up with appropriate personal cover, it can cost you less per year for more comprehensive cover that pays out in circumstances of illness as well as injury.
