Why you may need life insurance

Most Australians will insure their home and car but neglect to insure their most valuable asset - themselves. In fact, many people do not even have sufficient life insurance to ensure their home loan is paid out in the event of their death, let alone provide a lump sum to their families to provide for their future. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What would happen if you became ill or injured and your income stopped today?
  • Would you and your family have adequate income to meet the repayments on your debts?
  • If you have a family, what monthly income would you require to meet the bills?
  • Would you and your family still want to maintain your current lifestyle?
  • Would this be possible?
  • How long could you survive on your existing assets?

Generally, private health insurance and Medicare will cover medical costs but sometimes people need additional finance assistance to help protect their lifestyle and their families due to death or when recovering from a major illness or serious injury. Life insurance can help with paying the mortgage, everyday expenses, rehabilitation or extra medical costs such as accessing the best medical treatment.
