Serious Illness Insurance

Thankfully, not all serious illnesses are terminal. But even so, they can certainly impact you and your family in ways you may not expect, and the financial burden can be immediate and substantial.

If you are the family breadwinner, the financial impact of a serious illness is clear, and the payment may cover some of your lost income during this time. If you are your family’s main caregiver, all the things you used to do may need to be done by someone else while you recover.

The benefit amount can be used any way you wish, such as for everyday expenses, your mortgage, medical bills, for childcare or school fees.

Features of Serious Illness Insurance

    You can apply for this optional cover if you are aged between 18 and 59 and are an Australian resident.
    You can choose a benefit amount, from $20,000 up to $500,000 or 50% of your Life Insurance benefit amount.
    If you select a joint plan, you can choose a different benefit amount for you and your partner, based on your individual needs.
    As the benefit is paid as a lump sum, the money is available when you and your family need it most.


What‘s Covered?

The benefit is paid if you suffer one of the following defined serious illnesses:

  • Heart Attack,
  • Cancer,
  • Stroke, or
  • Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery.
