If something happened to you, who would pay your bills and look after your family?
A comprehensive financial strategy must include preparing for things you hope will never happen. You need to know that your family, your assets and your income stream are protected if the unexpected happens. Insurance is key to this protection.
When developing your financial plan, we will consider your circumstances and recommend insurance products that best suit your needs.
We offer protection from a range of categories:
Life insurance pays a lump sum if you die prematurely. Its purpose is to pay outstanding debts to ensure the remaining dependents are taken care of by providing income to keep the family home and current standard of living. People often grossly underestimate the required amount of life cover needed to clear debts and provide for loved ones should an unexpected life event occur. We can help you identify an adequate amount of cover to ensure your loved ones will be protected.
KEY PERSON INSURANCE
Key person insurance is designed for a person in business whose death, disablement or early retirement due to illness or medical condition would have an adverse economic impact on the business. Its purpose is to provide a lump sum of money to offset the estimated amount the business would lose should that person not be able to carry out their regular role as key person. It can also allow time to find a suitable replacement or ease the negative financial impact if the key person dies or cannot return to work.
Income protection insurance pays monthly income if you can’t work due to illness or accident. The maximum amount of cover for income protection insurance is 75% of your average monthly income. Premiums are determined by a number of factors such as the amount of cover, when you will start receiving payments, and which definition of employment the policy applies to.
TOTAL & PERMANENT DISABILITY (TPD)
Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) insurance pays a lump-sum if you are unlikely to return to work as result of injury or illness. It can be bundled with a life cover policy or be a standalone policy. Its benefits are basically the same as a life cover policy with the addition of expected medical costs – its used to repay debts and provide an income if you are no longer able to work due to an unforeseen event.
BUSINESS EXPENSE COVER
Business expense cover can be an option with most income protection policies. It is designed to cover fixed expenditure for a limited time for people who are self-employed or own a small business. Cover is generally offered for up to one year while the insured is unable to work due to illness or injury.
Trauma insurance pays a lump sum benefit on diagnosis of a critical illness, as well as satisfying a definition of a specific ailment. Policies vary between providers, but some allow for up to 30 or more medical conditions which may arise unexpectedly.
