Life Insurance

Everyone wants to protect their family. But what does it really involve?

Family protection involves putting in place the most appropriate arrangements, such as life insurance, to protect you and your family from the risk of injury, illness, incapacity and death.

Most Australians will insure their car but neglect to insure their most valuable asset – themselves. In fact, many people do not even have sufficient life insurance to ensure their home loan is paid out in the event of their death, let alone provide a lump sum to their families to provide for their future. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What would happen if you became ill or injured and your income stopped today?
  • Would you and your family have adequate income to meet the repayments on your debts?
  • If you have a family, what monthly income would you require to meet the bills?
  • Would you and your family still want to maintain your current lifestyle?
  • Would this be possible?
  • How long could you survive on your existing assets?


If you are struggling to answer some of the questions then you may need to address the need to protect you and your family. Protecting all of the above can be achieved through life insurance, but it is important to find the right type of cover for you as there are many seemingly similar policies that vary significantly in benefits and features. What types of insurance are best for you? You can obtain life insurance by talking to a ClearView Financial Planner or by buying simple cover direct.

"I couldn't work and had to look after my eight year old son. To top it all off my workers compensation didn’t cover the loss of income for the full term of my rehabilitation.

My life insurance payment was the first good thing that finally got me back on track. Thanks to my life insurance everything has been made much easier for me."
