Description

Life insurance is a policy that will pay a specified sum of money to the estate of the insured or nominated beneficiary upon the death of the life insured. In exchange, the insured person agrees to make regular payments of life insurance premiums (on a monthly or quarterly basis) to the life insurance company. The life insurance policy is subject to strict limitations, exclusions, terms and conditions and it is therefore extremely important for you to know the life insurance policy limitations, exclusions, terms and conditions before you sign the contract. You should seek advice from a licenced insurance broker prior to signing any life insurance policy document.


Do you need this type of insurance?
Have you ever thought how your family would cope financially if you were to pass away unexpectedly? You should regularly review your family's financial obligations, in conjunction with your life insurance broker, to ensure that you are appropriately insured. The greater your financial obligations and the more dependants you have, the more life insurance you may need to protect your assets and your family's financial security. Obligations which may need to be considered are your mortgage, paying for your children’s future education, settlement of personal debts, funeral expenses and your family's future living expenses.

Most risk advisors will recommend that you have life insurance cover equivalent to a minimum of 10 times your average annual income.
