What is Family Income Benefit?

Generally, with life insurance, your loved ones will receive a lump sum payout from your policy when you pass away. However, with family income benefit your loved ones will be paid a regular income for a set period of time to replace the lost income. The payments aren’t normally subject to income tax but may impact some state benefits.

When you take out a Family Income Benefit Policy, you will specify what income you would want your loved ones to receive, and for how long for. The provider will work out what monthly premium you would need to pay in order to secure that cover. Family income benefit is generally seen as the most budget-friendly form of life insurance available. This is because the insurer is less likely to have to pay out a significant sum, and even if they do, they don’t need to pay it all in one go.
