Don’t get caught out saying ‘it won’t happen to me’

Insurance is all about protecting the things and people that matter if you aren’t in a position to do so yourself. It provides real help when you need it, if you get hurt and can’t work, become disabled, or worse, you lose your life. It’s at that life-changing point in time you’ll want the reassurance that you and your family will be looked after.

Unfortunately Australians are chronically under-insured when it comes to our more precious assets of all – ourselves. 

An insurance payout can make a huge difference to the immediate wellbeing and future comfort of those you love. In the event of something happening to you, your insurance payouts can be used to:

  • Clear debts
  • Pay for funeral expenses
  • Invest to generate replacement income
  • Cover childcare costs for dependants
  • Pay medical expenses
  • Pay for medical rehabilitation
  • Pay for home medications
  • Make any necessary lifestyle changes.
