Navigating the
maze of
risk insurance

Life is unpredictable, and unexpected events like accidents, illnesses or disabilities can have a significant impact on our lives and finances. Insurance coverage serves as a crucial safety net by providing financial support during challenging times.

Let’s explore different types of insurance and how they can make a difference through real life case studies.

LIFE INSURANCE

Life insurance offers financial protection for you and your family in the event of unforeseen circumstances such as accidents, terminal illness or death.

Consider the case of Ben

Ben passed away from a heart attack at the age of 50 leaving behind a wife and three young children. Thanks to adequate life insurance coverage, his wife Jennifer received a lump sum payment that allowed her to cover the mortgage and maintain their family home and provide stability during a difficult time.

INCOME PROTECTION

Income protection ensures you receive a monthly income if you are unable to work due to injury or illness.

Take Joe a self-employed plumber, for example

After a snowboarding accident left him with a torn ligament and unable to work for nine months, his income protection policy provided him with a monthly benefit ensuring he could meet his mortgage obligations and cover living expenses during his recovery period.

TOTAL AND PERMANENT DISABILITY (TPD) COVER

TPD cover offers a lump sum benefit if you suffer a total or permanent disability. It helps you make necessary lifestyle adjustments or access rehabilitation services.

Pierce

He injured his lower back at work, received financial assistance through TPD cover and allowed him to pay his medical bills and focus on his recovery without financial stress.

Trauma cover

Trauma insurance provides a lump sum payment upon the diagnosis of specified illnesses or injuries. It alleviates the financial burden associated with medical treatment and lifestyle adjustments.

Fiona’s story illustrates the importance of trauma cover

Fiona received a substantial benefit after being diagnosed with MS. It enabled her and her husband to adapt their lifestyle to manage the condition effectively.

CHILD COVER

Child cover offers a lump sum benefit if your child suffers from specified trauma conditions, terminal illness or death.

Josh

Josh’s experience with leukemia highlights the financial strain his family faced during his treatment. Child cover could have provided them with much needed financial support to cover medical expenses, accommodation and childcare costs during this challenging time.

These case studies underscore the critical role insurance plays in safeguarding individuals and families against unforeseen events. By understanding the importance of various types of insurance coverage and ensuring adequate protection, you can mitigate financial risks and secure peace of mind for the future.
