This week, Ryan McCracken and Koketso Sachane continue to unpack life cover.

Life cover isn't just an extension of a funeral cover or what will happen in the event of your or a loved one's death. A life cover is also crucial for example in the event of physical disability and income protection.

McCracken describes income protection as a way of insuring your income.

It is largely directed at your self employed and commission earner kind of guys.

McCracken notes that income protection does extend further.

A lot of companies have what we call extended benefits on income protection that deal with the long term.

An individual needs to be employed permanently before a claim can be assessed, he explains.
