Benefits of choosing Seniors Term Life Insurance

Flexible cover amount that suits you

Choose how much you or your family will receive if you pass away or become terminally ill. You can set a benefit amount from $10,000 up to $100,000.

Easy to apply with no medicals

Simply answer eight questions about your medical history over the phone. Once approved, you can get covered in minutes.

Immediate cover

Once your policy is set up, you’ll be covered straight away for death by any cause, and for terminal illness (excluding suicide for the first 13 months).

20% advance payout to cover funeral costs

When your family makes a claim, we’ll give them 20% of the benefit amount in advance, so they won’t have to worry about the cost of your funeral or other immediate expenses.

Triple payout for accidental death

Your family’s benefit amount will be tripled if you pass away from an accident, helping with any last-minute expenses they might face.

Your own personal claims specialist

If you or your family need to make a claim, we’ll assign you a dedicated claims specialist to look after everything. No need to explain things to multiple people.

We’ll keep your premiums manageable

Unlike some life insurance policies, your annual premium increase won’t be based on your age which will help with budgeting later in life. Plus, we offer lower starting premiums for non-smokers.

Cover for when you need it most

We know that the older you get, the more you have to protect. That’s why our cover is designed for people aged 45 to 79, protecting you and your family for the next 20 years or until you turn 85 – whichever comes first.

Understanding life insurance

Life insurance is a lump-sum payment that you or your family receive if you pass away or become terminally ill. It’s one way to help protect the financial future of your loved ones after you’re gone.

As we get older, our insurance needs change. That’s why it’s important to know the different types of life insurance policies that are available and which one works best for you and your specific situation.

Term life insurance is different to traditional (all of) life insurance. Find out more about the differences and how term life insurance can help at your life stage.

Life insurance pays out a lump-sum benefit to your family when you pass away or become terminally ill. This process typically starts with getting approved by an insurer and choosing your benefit amount.

Here is a brief overview of what you might consider when choosing your benefit amount depending on where you are in life’s journey.

Life insurance can support you and your family when the unexpected happens by acting as a financial buffer for any immediate bills if you were to pass away or suffer from a terminal illness, which is a growing concern for all of us as we get older.

How do I get life insurance?

It’s easy to apply for Seniors Term Life Insurance. Just answer eight questions about your health, tell us how much you want to be covered for, and we’ll do the rest. You can request a quote now, or have us call you.

Why do we need life insurance?

Life insurance provides financial assistance to help take care of your family in the event of you passing away. This could include paying medical expenses, funeral costs, paying off any outstanding debts or loans, relocating or downsizing your home, or whatever else you believe is best for you and your loved ones.

Life insurance can also provide financial support if you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness (usually defined as being given 12 or 24 months or less to live depending on the policy), allowing you to focus on spending time with loved ones rather than worrying about paying your bills. Learn more about the benefits of life insurance.

Does smoking void a life insurance policy?

You typically won’t be denied life insurance if you are a smoker, but it could increase the cost of your cover.

Can I cover my partner too?

Yes, you can apply for a single policy that covers your own life or a joint plan that includes your spouse, partner or de facto. Learn more about Life Insurance.

How much is life insurance per month?

Each policy will differ depending on individual circumstances and the cover selected, so there’s no set price for life insurance. Premiums are usually based on factors such as: your age, whether you’re a smoker, current health and medical history, the level of cover you choose and the duration of cover. When applying, it’s important that you answer all questions accurately and truthfully as this will affect your cover and eligibility when making a claim. Learn more about how much life insurance you need.
