Life insurance is designed to provide your family with financial security if you die or a diagnosed with a terminal illness. The lump sum that is paid out can give your family the security and freedom to make choices about their future.
How much is enough?
While most people have some level of life insurance within their super fund, often it’s not enough. Likewise, insurance you bought years ago may no longer meet your needs, particularly if you’ve had major life changes such as a new job, new house or you’ve had a child.
How much life insurance you’ll need depends largely on your personal situation. In most cases you should select an amount of cover that can help your family:
- Pay off the mortgage and other debts
- Meet ongoing household expenses
- Pay for your children’s education
- Pay for extra child care or home services
- Cover the cost of funeral expenses
To discuss the level of life insurance that’s right for you, make an appointment with a Suncorp Financial Adviser.
What does it cost?
The cost of life insurance varies based on a range of factors including your age, gender, and the amount of cover you require. As an example, for the equivalent of $1.96 a day a 40 year old non-smoking man could buy a policy that pays a benefit of around $1.13 million*.
* Based on an Asteron Life Complete policy for a non-smoking man age 40, with premiums paid annually.
