What can Life Insurance provide for?

Most Insurance companyies have additional benefits that expand the coverage provided to you.

As an example Parent Cover provides you with a lump sum benefit of up to $15,000 if your mother or father passes away, to help cover funeral and associated expenses.

Accident Cover is a practical alternative to full Life cover not subject to a medical assessment which means it may be an effective insurance if you have health conditions that make Life, TPD and/or Income Protection Cover expensive or unavailable
