How Income Protection saved Andrew

A herniated disc sounds agonising enough. But add to that the fact that you’re a brand-new parent, and you’re in whole new world of pain. This was the reality for Andrew and his family when he got injured at work. With wife Hayley on maternity leave and Andrew out of work (and a long medical journey ahead of him), just keeping up with the mortgage wouldn’t have been possible if it hadn’t been for the insurance cover they’d had the foresight to take out.

Andrew’s herniated disc could have doomed his family to financial uncertainty, however Income Protection gave him the opportunity and peace-of-mind to recover properly. Pina Sciarrone of AIA explains how Income Protection not only saved his finances, but restored his dignity.
