How to "Benefit to Age 65"

Posted by Naomi Rosenthal on Wednesday, November 13, 2013, In : Life Insurance 
We encourage our clients (particularly the younger ones) to take a “benefit period to age 65” for their Income Protection policy. But what does this actually mean?

While this is common vernacular, it is actually a little misleading, as generally a policy will only pay until the policy expiry date, which may be age 65 or it may be the policy anniversary prior to or after age 65.
