A significant proportion of Australian families would face financial hardship if the primary income earner at home were to have an accident, become sick or die.
If you’re unable to work due to illness or injury, you’re considered underinsured if your family isn’t able to maintain their current lifestyle.
A lack of adequate insurance to protect yourself from the unexpected can have a disastrous effect on your family’s financial wellbeing.
Unfortunately, many people only read their policy when they need to make a claim but by this time it's often too late.
To find out how much insurance cover you need ask yourself these questions:
- Could my family and I manage financially if my income no longer existed?
- Do I have regular loan repayments to meet?
- Do I have or am I planning on having children?
- Do I have people who are financially dependent on me?
As a member of the Fund, you can talk to a financial adviser over the phone at no additional cost to help work out how much insurance cover is right for you.
