See all Loan protection FAQs

Last updated 03 December 2015

Loan Protection is made up of two different cover types – Loan Cover and Loan Repayment Cover.

Loan Cover is insurance for your outstanding loan balance. It can help by paying a lump sum toward your loan if you become terminally ill, pass away or if you suffer a heart attack, stroke, cancer or coronary artery disease requiring bypass surgery.

Loan Repayment cover is insurance for your minimum monthly loan repayments. It can help with repayments if you become involuntarily unemployed or if you can’t work because of an illness or injury.

You can find out more, including about limits and exclusions, in the PDS.
