AMP helps you protect the most precious people in your life with strong, dependable insurance cover. Safeguarding what’s important to you means enjoying what you have, and knowing that should the unexpected happen, you’ve covered what matters most – yourself and your loved ones.
Ways to help you manage your policy
1. Review your cover when things change
Reaching major milestones like having kids, paying off the mortgage, buying or selling an investment property or retiring can impact the amount of insurance cover you need. You may also choose to review any loadings you have*, additional options you have chosen, or any activities or conditions your cover excludes^. It’s important to review your cover to ensure you’re only paying for what you need.
* A loading is an extra amount factored into your insurance premium, which reflects your personal circumstances at the time you underwent underwriting.
^ Exclusions are those activities and conditions you won’t be covered for, because of the risk involved from a pre-existing medical condition.
2. Switch off automatic insurance increases
Your policy may have a feature that automatically increases your cover each year to keep up with inflation. If you decide you don’t need this additional cover, you can cancel your next automatic increase and your sum insured will remain the same.
3. Tell us about healthy lifestyle changes you’ve made
Making healthy lifestyle changes is a great achievement. If you have quit smoking for at least 12 months, you can request an insurance reassessment to see if you can decrease the cost of your cover.
4. Keep your beneficiaries up to date
If you haven’t nominated a beneficiary yet or if they have changed, let us know as soon as you can. Also, for some policies, your original beneficiary notification may expire after a period of time, which means you have to renominate them.
