Choosing the right insurance

The right amount and type of insurance for you and your loved ones

Choosing the right type and the right amount of insurance can help to make sure that if anything were to happen, you and your loved ones would be looked after financially.

But remember, as your life changes so do your insurance needs. Holding a mortgage, having children and getting married are all factors that increase your financial responsibilities. So you’ll need to review your cover as your situation changes.

What types of personal insurance are available?

There are four types of personal insurance every Australian should understand:

You’d insure your car and your house, so why wouldn’t you insure what might be your most valuable asset—your ability to earn an income?

Have you considered how dependent you and your family may be on your income? Income protection insurance can give you peace of mind that if you were unable to work due to illness or injury, your family and the lifestyle you’ve built can be financially protected.

Income protection usually pays a monthly benefit of up to 75% of your regular income while you’re unable to work due to illness or injury.

Money is the last thing you’d want to think about when faced with a lifelong disability.

But if you were to become disabled and unable to work again, TPD cover provides you with a lump sum payment to help you financially.

After suffering a traumatic event, trauma cover can relieve your financial worries and let you focus on your recovery.
