KT-Plus - the Envivas Income Protection Insurance

Financial protection against loss of income while you are unable to work: for employees and the self-employed

Nobody can predict the future: an accident or illness could prevent you from working for weeks or months. That's why it is important to plan ahead and take out an income protection policy that provides financial security and guarantees a regular monthly income.

If you are off sick as an employee, your employer will continue to pay your salary for six weeks. After that, TK will take over and pay a reduced sick pay, which leaves you with an income gap.

If you are self-employed and are unable to work, you won't have an employer to provide you with benefits, which means you need financial protection from the first day you are taken ill or have an accident.

Bridge your income gap: Envivas income protection insurance (KT) pays a regular monthly income. You can choose from different options to suit your individual needs.

  • day 43 of being unable to work (week 7)
  • day 183 of being unable to work (week 27)

Employees can opt for a 100 euro payout per day.

Income protection for the self-employed (KT-Plus für Selbstständige): top financial protection with benefit paid from

  • day 22 of being unable to work (week 4)
  • day 43 of being unable to work (week 7)
  • day 183 of being unable to work (week 27)

Self-employed people can opt for a daily benefit up to 100 euros from day 22, and as much as 200 euros from day 43 or 183

You can focus on your recovery thanks to an unlimited benefit period

Stay financially independent

That is why you will benefit from income protection insurance as a member of TK

Everyone wants to stay healthy. But what if you are unable to work for a longer period because of an accident at your workplace or while doing sport in your free time?
If you are financially protected, you can fully focus on your recovery and not worry about your financial situation.

If you are off sick as an employee, your employer will continue to pay your salary for up to six weeks. After that, TK will take over and pay a reduced sick pay that covers about 70 per cent of your monthly gross income and a maximum of 90 per cent of your monthly net income. 

Bridge the income gap with income protection insurance

Your monthly income gap is about 500 euros in the example above. Who can afford not to have 500 euros each month when you have ongoing monthly financial commitments such as loan repayments, rent and costs to run your car? 

Envivas income protection insurance bridges the gap that arises from the difference between your net income and the TK sick pay.
