Life insurance

In Australia, 60% of families with dependents will run out of money within a year if the breadwinner dies1


Who would provide for your family if something went wrong?

How would your debts be taken care of? 

We all take our health for granted and rarely think that anything bad could happen to us. 

Yet it's important to consider how your dependents would get by financially without you. 

Imagine your family coping with both personal tragedy and a dramatic decrease in their living standards – like losing their home – it's a horrific thought. 

‘Life’ or ‘family’ insurance pays a lump sum amount in the event of your death, helping protect your loved ones’ lifestyle and future. It helps ensure your family could survive without you, paying off their debts and providing them with an income to continue living. 

Life cover starts from just a few dollars a week – the same as a latte! 

It's something we don't like to think about but it's vital for your family that you do. If the worst happens, at least they won't have to worry about money, and you can be confident that the lifestyle you worked so hard to create can still be their reality.

It can all change in the blink of an eye

Life insurance can't prevent the unexpected, but it can make life a lot easier for those you leave behind. Life insurance lets the people who matter to you continue to lead a decent lifestyle if you were to pass away unexpectedly.

None of us like to think about our own mortality. But ignoring the possibility that you could pass away prematurely could see your family facing a financial struggle if tragedy occurred.

The fact is that people of all ages can - and do - die unexpectedly.

People just like you, with families and financial commitments. Without life insurance, those who are close to you could face serious financial challenges – and all at a time of immense personal grief.

Life insurance addresses this risk

Life cover provides a lump sum payout to the people you nominate in the event of your death. The money can be used in whatever way they choose – to pay off the home loan, fund your children's education or simply meet regular bills. It means they can rebuild their lives without financial stress.

Arranging life cover is surprisingly easy
