What if you were unable to work for an extended period of time, you were to become permanently disabled, or you were to die.

Think about the added stresses this would put on you and/or your loved ones when money could be the least of your worries.
We may have a Plan A for our finances but what about a contingency Plan B? That’s where personal insurance can provide you peace of mind by replacing your income or provide a lump sum of money to help with living expenses.

Insurance inside your super
If cash flow is a concern, you can still protect you and/or your family by having most of your personal insurances paid for by your super fund. We can advise you on the pros and cons of this, so you can make an informed choice that suits you.

- For how long can you meet your living expenses before you would want your insurance payments to start?
- For how long would you want your insurance payments to last?
- For what events would you want to be covered?
