What is Life Insurance?


Life Insurance, also known as 'Death Cover' or 'Term Life Insurance', offers a lump-sum payment to your family or other nominated beneficiaries if you are no longer around or become terminally ill. It is designed to help your loved ones meet the financial strains of keeping the household running if something were to happen to you and you were no longer around .

Why get Life Insurance?

Help protect their financial future with Life Insurance cover in case the unexpected happens and you're no longer around to take care of them.
