1 Income Protection Adviser Education & Marketing Kit FEBRUARY 2013 WE SEE AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONNECT

2 We see an opportunity to Connect Barely 20% of Kiwis have Income Protection Recently the Financial Services Council 1 reported that while more than 95 percent of homes and cars are insured, only 57 percent of New Zealanders insure their lives and barely 20 percent have income protection insurance. The same report characterised 60 percent of New Zealanders as finding personal insurance all too hard. Speaking about the report, the independent chair of the Financial Services Council Dame Jenny Shipley, said market research indicates there is no hostility to the idea of personal risk insurance. In fact most people understand its value, but don t know how much they need, or feel confident about purchasing it. 1 This highlights what many of you will come across everyday many Kiwis out there need a helping hand to understand our industry s complexities. This presents a massive opportunity for you as a professional adviser to help demystify personal insurance and create a strong connection with them in the process. We re here to help you meet the challenge head on and make the most of this opportunity.

3 60% of New Zealanders find personal insurance "too hard" IT'S ABOUT SUITABILITY. IT'S ABOUT YOUR SKILLED ADVICE It s well recognised in our industry that income protection is a complex area. The fact there are so many ways to earn a living and live one s life, means a wide range of income protection benefits are available to match the wide variety for client needs and affordability. Recommending income protection requires thorough assessment of a client s needs in order to identify the most suitable benefits for your client. The right income protection for your client is very much a factor of the predictability of their income, the type of job they do, and their specific financial commitments and goals. Your clients may rightly feel overwhelmed by the choices on offer. This is why providing advice on income protection presents an outstanding opportunity for you to showcase the value your skill offers clients in helping navigate the range of available choices, so they can find the best option to suit them. HINT! Integrating the SovTrack advice process into your sales process is well worth the time. Many advisers have told us that time invested with clients while using the process enables them to better understand their client needs, and they are also finding their recommendations are more readily accepted as the client has understood the reasoning clients are able to see the facts and figures that lead to the recommendations. The SovTrack advice process is available in Xplan for use by all SovNet advisers and Nominated Representatives in the Sovereign QFE. If you d like more information on this please contact your Business Development Manager. KEY FACTORS IN DETERMINING SUITABILITY > Income predictability > Income frequency > Income source > Size of mortgage commitments versus other living expenses and debt > Risk tolerance > Occupation class > Savings Sovereign Marketing Guide for Advisers 2

4 SOVEREIGN'S INCOME PROTECTION RANGE 10 types of cover to connect you with the full spectrum of Kiwis' needs MADE TO CONNECT WITH ALL YOUR CLIENTS' NEEDS Increasingly more people are becoming parents before considering marriage or setting up businesses and even start their retirement savings long before they buy their first home. Meanwhile, many of our incomes come from fluctuating sources contracting, self employment and entrepreneurial start-ups. The traditional nine-to-five order of life can no longer be relied on as a model for mapping financial needs. New Zealanders are great pioneers and are by no means afraid to do things differently. We re confident taking on life s great events the way we want to and in the order that suits us. The fact there are so many ways to earn a living and live one s life, means we constantly strive to provide a range of well-constructed income protection options that have all New Zealanders needs in mind. In light of this we re excited to launch two new Disability Income Protection benefits Mortgage and Income Protection and Loss of Earnings. These additions strengthen our range of ten cover options and are made to connect you with the full spectrum of New Zealanders income protection needs, from core to specialist. The following pages provide an outline of the full Sovereign Income Protection range. More details are available in the Why Sovereign: Disability Income Protection brochure and at sovereign.co.nz/productchanges. You should always refer to the policy wordings for full, up-to-date benefit details. TOTALCAREMAX DISABILITY INCOME PROTECTION PERSONAL NEW Mortgage and Income Protection Agreed Value Income Protection Essential Disability Income Protection Indemnity Income Protection NEW Loss of Earnings Agreed value benefit Indemnity benefit Best of both TOTALCAREMAX DISABILITY INCOME PROTECTION BUSINESS Start up Locum Cover Rural Continuity Business Overheads Agreed value benefit Business Continuity Choice of both 3 Sovereign Marketing Guide for Advisers

5 SOVEREIGN'S INCOME PROTECTION RANGE - PERSONAL Introducing two new Disability Income Protection benefits NEW: MORTGAGE AND INCOME PROTECTION Simple protection that caters to a broad spectrum of New Zealanders particularly those starting out big dreams, big plans, big reasons to protect their income. Made to connect with people who want straight-forward income protection calculated on what s likely to be the biggest component of their living costs their rent or mortgage payments. > Certainty from an agreed value contract with cover to a maximum of $6,000 per month. > No ACC offsets. > Clients can choose to insure up to: > 110% of their mortgage repayments** or > 40% of their gross income** a great option for those renting. > Bed Confinement Benefit > Optional Inflation Protection Benefit > Optional Redundancy Cover ** Calculated at application time Taxation: Claim payments under this option are not taxable, and the premiums are not deductible.^ CONNECTING YOU WITH YOUR CLIENTS' CHANGING NEEDS THE CHANGE THE CONSTANT THE RESPONSE Shifting attitudes and prohibitive costs to home ownership, mean more New Zealanders are taking on big responsibilities marriage, parenthood, business ownership long before they buy their first home. Meanwhile, accommodation costs, be whether rent or mortgage payments, take up a significant portion of most Kiwis incomes. Sovereign s Mortgage and Income Protection gives all New Zealanders the opportunity to secure simple protection to help ensure they keep a roof over their heads, and their plans on track, should injury or sickness prevent them from earning. There s also optional redundancy cover for those earning a regular salary or wage. And because we know, more often than not, accommodation costs rise over time we ve included an inflation protection benefit. Please note: Mortgage Instalment Insurance is now closed to new business but open to increases. All features under the new Mortgage and Income Protection benefit will be passed back to all existing Mortgage Instalment Insurance policyholders. ^ This is based on Sovereign s understanding of New Zealand tax law in force at the date this document was prepared. As the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) is considering legislative change to clarify the tax treatment of income protection policies, Sovereign cannot and does not guarantee the correctness of its current understanding, nor does it accept any responsibility for any tax outcomes that may arise from any difference between its understanding as detailed in this document and the view of the IRD. Sovereign therefore recommends that your client consults a professional tax adviser for tax advice specific to their personal circumstances. Sovereign Marketing Guide for Advisers 4

6 SOVEREIGN'S INCOME PROTECTION RANGE PERSONAL NEW: LOSS OF EARNINGS The best of both worlds indemnity or agreed value; your client chooses the calculation that is most favourable at claim time.

Taxation: Claim payments under this option are taxable, and the premiums are deductible.^ Please note: Indemnity Extra cover is now closed to new business. Loss of Earnings is a new benefit so does not pass back to existing policyholders.

Replacement business rules apply please refer to the Sovereign Underwriting Guide.

Taxation: Claim payments under this option are taxable, and the premiums are deductible.^ OPTIONAL BENEFIT *PREMIER OPTION Upgrade option for Indemnity, Agreed Value and Loss of Earnings. Made to connect with New Zealanders who want extra peace of mind from their cover.

As the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) is considering legislative change to clarify the tax treatment of income protection policies, Sovereign cannot and does not guarantee the correctness of its current understanding, nor does it accept any responsibility for any tax outcomes that may arise from any difference between its understanding as detailed in this document and the view of the IRD. Sovereign therefore recommends that your client consults a professional tax adviser for tax advice specific to their personal circumstances. Sovereign Marketing Guide for Advisers 6
