Frequently asked questions about this type of policy

Life insurance protects your loved ones and can ensure that they don't suffer financially if you're not around anymore. A policy is usually bought to cover the period (or term) that your family most need help. For a regular monthly income or lump sum, you may want to consider family income benefit.

It all depends on a few things; your health, your age, your smoker status, the amount of cover you're after and maybe even your hobbies.
You can buy whole-of-life policies that pay out whenever you die. Because they can last way into old age, they can be expensive. The good news is there are cost-effective policies that provide for a set period - for example, the length of your mortgage or until the kids fly the nest.
Life Insurance is designed to protect your family if you die; in the same way car insurance won't pay out if you don't have an accident, or pet insurance doesn't pay if your pet stays well - there'll be no payout if you're around during the life of the policy.

What exactly is 'the right amount' of cover?

There's no standard answer - it's based on you and what's going on at home. Our calculator offers a suggestion but it's not a recommendation.

'The right amount' of cover is a balance: what you need versus your budget. But let's figure that part out together - after you calculate, call an advisor or jot your details and we'll call you.
