Strategy: Combining Income Care cover with Loss of
Licence cover*
Many pilots believe in the validity of Loss of Licence insurance,
should they be grounded due to accident or illness. However,
there can be some limitations to being protected by Loss of
Licence alone.
Like Income Protection, Loss of licence insurance covers a
Pilot or Flight Engineer if unable to work in the capacity for which a
licence is held due to accident or illness. Where the two types of
cover differ significantly can be seen below. Loss of Licence offers:
• A maximum of 12 month benefit period
• Lower maximum sums insured – $500,000
• Pays the lesser of 75% of income or $10,000 per month
• Waiting periods of 90 days or 180 days
• Death benefit of $100,000, but only if by accident
• Cancellable policy – at discretion of insurance company every
  12 months.

Income Care offers:
• Benefit period of 2 years, 5 years or to age 60
• Higher maximum sums insured – $2,000,000
• Pays the lesser of 75% of income (plus ancillary benefits) or
  $30,000 per month
• Waiting period of 30 days or 60 days
• Death benefit of $75,000 or 4x monthly benefit, by accident or
  injury or illness
• Yearly renewable policy – provided the client pays premiums the
  policy cannot be cancelled by the insurance company
• Tax deductible premiums.

A good strategy is to view Loss of Licence insurance as a form
of TPD cover for pilots that can pay up to $500,000 if the pilot has
permanent total disablement resulting in loss of licence. Income
care can then be used as a complementary insurance coverage
that may replace salary up to age 60 (subject to maximum limits).

* Loss of Licence cover is available for Pilots and Flight Engineers only.
  It is not applicable to Flight Attendants.


  What are the odds?

  n Every working Australian has a 1 in 3 chance of becoming disabled for more than 3 months before turning 651.

  n More than half of all serious accidents happen outside of work, so Workers Compensation doesn’t apply2.

  n 51% of people are generally unaware of the tax benefits associated with income protection3.
