Income Protection, broken arm $6,500

Who is Melissa?

Melissa is a 28 year old osteopath, self-employed in her own practice.

What happened to Melissa?

While on holiday with friends, Melissa had a nasty skiing accident and ended up with a broken arm. As an Osteopath, a broken arm means being unable to work.

Luckily, Melissa had an Income Protection policy, which provided an income while she couldn’t work.

Where is Melissa now?

Melissa returned to work six weeks later and resumed business as usual. Although she is considering changing the next ski holiday to a beach location instead!


“I have always been a pretty confident skier so I never thought I would be the one to have an accident and injure myself! The nature of my job means any injury to my arms or hands means I can’t treat my clients. Income Protection cover made life a lot easier and meant my income was covered while I was out of action.”
