What's not covered?

We don't cover death by suicide or intentional self-injury, within 13 months of getting covered. In some cases we can't cover certain pre-existing medical conditions.

See the policy wording for more information.

What's a life event?

With the Life Events Benefit, you can increase the Life Cover sum insured when certain events happen in a life assured’s life. 

If the life assured experiences a certain life event, you can apply to increase the Life Cover sum insured without assessment of their health.

Your premiums will increase from the date we’ve increased the sum insured.

We cover certain life events 

You can increase the Life Cover sum insured for a life assured if they experience a significant event in their life such as, getting married or entering a civil union, having a child, buying a house or property investment. 

You can increase the sum insured for each event. For a full list of eligible events, limits and T&C's, see policy wording
