What Is Temporary Unfitness Cover?

Temporary unfitness coverage is aimed at protecting individuals who experience a temporary inability to perform their professional duties due to illness, injury, or medical conditions.

It includes benefits such as income replacement or a percentage of the insured person’s salary during their period of temporary unfitness. This coverage helps individuals maintain their financial stability while recovering and unable to work temporarily.

(Amount of daily allowance may not be higher than 80% of basic salary that you have received over the 12 months preceding the temporary unfitness)
