About Life Care

What it covers

By providing a lump sum payment, Life Care gives you or your beneficiaries money when it is most needed. The coverage includes:

  • Life Care Advance Payment benefit – can provide a cash advance up to $30,000 to help with the cost of a funeral or similar expenses
  • Financial Planning benefit – pays up to $5,000 to help cover the costs of seeking financial advice
  • Accommodation benefit – helps cover accommodation costs for an immediate family member who needs to be nearby if you’re confined to bed and receiving treatment a long away from home. This is payable once a claim has been finalised and paid
    Severe Hardship Booster benefit – an increased benefit to beneficiaries if your terminal illness or death is related to specific conditions
  • Interim Accident cover – for accidents that occur while we’re processing your application.
  • Loyalty Bonus benefit – a 5% increase in your Life Care benefit as a reward for holding your policy for five years
  • Life Care Buy Back benefit – reinstates Life Care after 12 months if it has been reduced by a previous Total and Permanent Disability or Trauma Cover claim
  • Indexed benefit – increases your cover each year in line with inflation
