Life Insurance Cover pays a lump sum of money if you pass away or become terminally ill. Life Cover is designed to help your family pay costs that you would have helped with if you were still alive.
You may also choose to have Accidental Death Cover that will only pay a lump sum benefit if you pass away as a result of an accident.
Are you and your family protected?
If you or your partner died suddenly, what position would you leave your family in?
Loss of income in these cases can have an immediate and long term impact on your loved ones left behind. A substantial remaining debt, such as a Home Loan still requires the same repayment no matter the circumstances. Life Cover benefits your family, allowing them to maintain the life that you both dreamed of.
For example, during the Feb 2011 Earthquake the average Life Cover pay-out was $176 000. If this was the pay-out for your family-would it be enough to cover your mortgage or would you need to sell your house?

Common questions about Life Cover
How much life cover do I need?
The level of life insurance cover you choose will depend on your needs. Things you'll need to consider:
- Do you have a mortgage to cover?
- How about credit card debt or any other hire purchases?
- Will your partner/spouse survive with a loss of your income?
- Do you have enough money to cover for your funeral costs?
- Can I use my life cover on anything?
If your claim is accepted, it's up to you to decide how to use the money. Maybe you'll need to settle debt - such as your mortgage, day-to-day bills, or to ensure that your family's lifestyle is less affected without your income.
Can my spouse/partner be covered too?
We don't offer joint life insurance cover but your spouse/partner can apply for Life Cover separately.
