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?

Life Insurance for many Australians is an afterthought; while we’re much more comfortable insuring our cars and homes, we often forget about our most valuable asset: our lives and our families livelihood. If something happens to you and you're no longer around, your family might find it difficult to make ends meet. 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.
