Life Protection Solutions
(aka Death cover)
If you were to die or become terminally ill when people are still dependent on you to provide for them, life insurance pays a one-off amount (a ‘lump sum’) that your beneficiaries can use to continue living the life you had planned together, for example:
Continue living in the family home
Provide for their education
Cover living expenses
Pay off debts
Total & Permanent Disability (TPD)
If you suffered an accident or illness that meant you are permanently unable to work, TPD insurance pays you a one-off amount (a ‘lump sum’). You can use it for any purpose you like but usually people use it to:
Pay for home modifications and lifestyle changes
Pay for long term care and ongoing medical expenses
Pay off any debts – e.g. a mortgage, personal loans
Invest and fund an ongoing income
Trauma (aka Critical Illness) Cover
If you suffer one of the listed serious medical conditions – like cancer, heart attack, stroke or an accident – trauma insurance pays you a one-off amount (a “lump sum”). You can use it for any purpose you like but usually people use it to:
Pay for treatment costs over and above what is covered by Medicare or Health Insurance – and these can be very substantial.
Pay for the best treatment available (this could include treatment overseas).
Make lifestyle changes so they can focus on healing – like permanently reducing the number of days they work, making modifications their home such as ramps and rails, and funding a family member to take time off work to support them in their recovery.
Take some time off work or take a stress-free family holiday.
Invest to fund an ongoing income for their family.
Take pressure off their finances by reducing debt.
If you have an accident or suffer an illness that means you’re unable to work, or only work in a reduced capacity, once your sick leave runs out and you no longer earn your full income, how will you afford to live?
Income Protection insurance provides you with, typically, 75% of your usual salary in a monthly payment – so you can keep making loan repayments, stay on top of household expenses and also continue to generate savings for your future.
For most Australians, superannuation will be their biggest asset, aside from their home. We’ll explain the issues you need to consider and how to make your super work for you.
