Personal Risk Insurance

We go through life expecting to earn an income and grow our assets over time, enabling us to look after ourselves and loved ones now and into the future.

But what would happen if you lost the ability to earn an income or even faced the prospective of premature death? How can you protect yourself and those that depend on you?

This is where having risk insurance can help.

Depending on the type of cover, risk insurance can fill the gap in assets, fund the cost of ongoing medical care, or replace your lost income.

  • Life insurance

    a lump sum amount to help your family continue to pay for the necessities in life, from the basics of food and accommodation, to covering the cost of future education.

  • Total and permanent disablement insurance (also known as TPD)

    pays a lump sum amount in the unfortunate event of permanent disability due to illness or accident. TPD insurance covers: medical treatment, pharmaceutical items, specialised therapies and rehabilitation costs that may not be covered by your health fund. It can also contribute financial support to general ongoing living expenses for you and your family.

  • Income protection insurance

    this replaces your income if you are unable to work due to sickness or injury by providing a monthly payment of up to 75% of your pre-tax income.

  • Trauma insurance

    pays a lump sum on the diagnosis of a specified illness or injury such as a heart attack, stroke, cancer and paraplegia #.
