5 The Income Benefit will generally be considered income replacement. Therefore the premiums for the Income Benefit may be tax deductible, and Income Benefit payments will generally be assessable as income. The optional TPD Benefit is generally not considered to be income replacement. Therefore the premiums for the TPD Benefit will generally not be tax deductible. You should seek professional advice on your own taxation position.
