At ifac Financial Solutions we know farmers and the business of farming. We have been looking after farm families for over 40 years.

We know that when you are in the thick of it running a busy farm it's not always easy to see how change might affect you or how you can protect yourself and your farm from a big financial hit like the loss of income through injury or illness.

We work with thousands of farmers around the country to ensure that they have valuable protection in place for their business, their family and themselves.

We help you to protect you, your farm and your family by asking questions such as:

Could you afford to pay someone to run your farm if you got injured and couldn’t work for a long period?
if you died would your family have access to a life insurance pay-out?
if you suffer a serious illness what impact would this have on your family and business?
if you are unable to work due to an accident or injury, how will your business cover the cost?
At ifac we work with farmers every day looking at their individual circumstances and helping them to understand their options to help protect their farms. We help to deliver peace of mind by providing a range of valuable and practical farm protection supports such as:

Income protection
Life Assurance
Serious illness insurance
Accident Benefit
Broken Bones Cover
Hospital Cash Benefit
