Every day you face a wide range of risks to your personal wellbeing and lifestyle. Life Assurance helps you minimise the financial impact of death or terminal illness.Life Assurance is designed to provide security for a wide range of financial commitments by paying a lump sum on your death. This essential form of protection is used for a variety of purposes:
- Mortgage commitments
- Personal debt, such as loans or credit cards
- Security for business obligations
- Provide a lump sum to fund your family’s future lifestyle in the event of your death
If you have debts which you would like paid on your death, or want to create a capital lump sum that your family can draw upon to meet their needs, then life assurance is an essential part of your financial planning.
A person suffering from one of the four main critical illnesses (heart attack, heart disease, cancer or stroke) has a nearly 50% chance of surviving for up to 10 years beyond the critical incident. However, in many cases this involves a reduced working capacity and necessitates significant lifestyle changes and costs. A lump sum benefit can make a real difference in meeting these costs.
Total Permanent Disability
The purchase of your home is one of the largest financial commitments you will make. Once you have committed yourself to a home loan, your lender typically expects you to meet your repayments, even when you can’t work due to sickness or injury. No one likes to think about serious illness or death but it makes sense to reduce the financial impact of such possibilities.Have you thought about how your dependents would repay the mortgage on your home if you were to die suddenly or be unable to work due to serious illness or a prolonged period of disability?
Mortgage Protector works when you can’t through a range of cover options that are designed to meet your protection needs.

5 reasons to have health insurance:
- Greater choice – choose when, where, how and by whom you get treated, in consultant with your doctor.
- Financial support – less stress about how to pay your health bills.
- Quicker treatment – avoid long delays for treatments in the public health system.
- Greater certainty – cover now for many unknown health issues that may arise later.
- Latest medical procedures – access too many latest recognised medical treatments and technologies.
The primary reason for business insurance is to provide immediate and relatively cheap finance to allow continuation of your business if serious illness or premature death should occur to a key person or major shareholder. The three main areas of concern are debt repayment, key person cover and succession planning; i.e. who will own and manage your business if premature death or total and permanent disablement occurs to one of the major shareholders?
