Have you ever thought about what would happen if you were sick or injured for a long period of time? Sure, sick leave or your savings may keep you financially afloat for a while. But once that runs out, how will you make sure your bills can still be paid while you focus on getting better?
Suncorp offers Bill Protect with optional Redundancy Benefit – an affordable, easy-to-obtain insurance that’s designed to help you get back on your feet if you are sick, injured or involuntarily unemployed. You could have an income of up to $4,000 a month to help cover the mortgage, buy groceries and help with the kids’ school fees and other bills.
Best of all, apply for cover is simple and there are no medical tests at application. Simply apply online or over the phone.
Select a monthly benefit between $1000 and $4,000, without any medical tests at application
You decide how much you’re covered for and there’s no need for any medical tests. We don't ask any income related questions either.
6, 12 or 24 month disability benefit available
Select how long you’ll receive payments if you’re off work with the same or related sickness or injury following the 30 day waiting period.
Don't pay premiums while you're on claim
We'll waive your premiums while you're receiving your monthly benefit. Also, the premiums you do pay are tax-deductible.
Guaranteed acceptance of your application
Acceptance of your application is guaranteed providing that when you apply, you’re an Australian or New Zealand citizen residing in Australia and aged 18-60.

Provided your cover has not ceased, we guarantee to insure you for the disability cover every year until your 75th birthday, even if your health changes.
