What is Family Income Benefit?

Family Income Benefit, or FIB for short, is a type of life or critical illness insurance that pays a monthly income, and is closely aligned with your calculated monthly living costs.

Family Income Benefit is quite often taken alongside a traditional single lump sum life insurance plan, that would be used to pay off borrowings, such as a mortgage.

The monthly, tax-free payments provided by a Family Income Benefit policy can help towards paying those remaining ongoing financial commitments, like utility bills, vehicle payments, food and other day-to-day living expenses.

Did you know?

While the name suggests it is an insurance for families, many of our customers don’t have dependants, but still have this type of cover in place for their partners, alongside a life insurance policy.
