Income Protection Insurance
Your most important financial asset is your income. But an accident or illness can rob you of that income in a heartbeat. And when it does, the expense of everyday living and medical treatments can quickly deplete your savings. So, it makes sense to shield your income as best you can.

CPA Select offers affordable Income Protection Insurance – providing a generous monthly benefit that replaces lost income in the event of serious accident or illness.

Plan Basics
The Income Protection Plan provides coverage for you, the member, as follows:

  • Select coverage ranging from $500 to $15,000 in monthly benefits, in increments of $100. (The maximum amount of coverage that you can apply for depends on your Earned Income. For Income Protection Insurance, Earned Income is measured after business expenses, but before deduction of any personal or corporate income taxes payable on it.) See Your Personal Coverage Maximum below.
  • Choose a Waiting Period from 0/7 days to 365 days. The longer the Waiting Period, the less you will pay for your coverage.
  • Apply up to Age 65 and keep your coverage up to Age 70.

Plan Features
This coverage includes special features at no additional cost:

Automatic Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA)

Premiums Waived If You Are Disabled

Survivor Benefit

Coverage That Goes Where You Go

Optional Coverage
Choose the Own Occupation Option and/or the Future Insurability Option when you apply, to get even greater value.
