ICBC’s Income Top-Up is optional coverage that provides additional income replacement support to top up the amount of wage loss replacement provided from the Enhanced Care benefit.
This optional coverage will be available when Enhanced Care comes into effect on May 1, 2021. If you’re renewing your policy before that date and interested in buying this coverage, talk to your broker.
How does Income Top-Up coverage help you?
Any British Columbian who earns above $100,000 gross income and doesn’t have any other income replacement coverage (such as through their employer) can buy additional optional coverage to top up the income replacement benefit they are eligible to receive under Enhanced Accident Benefits.
Who should consider buying this coverage?
Any B.C. resident who has a gross annual income of more than $100,000 with no other income replacement coverage (such as through their employer).
