There is no asset more valuable than your health. Without it you can’t work and without work, well, you don’t have any income. And while we all want to live a long, healthy life, it’s nice to know that our financial advisors can help financially protect you should you be unable to earn an income in the event of illness, injury or death.

Four Types of Personal Insurance
Choosing the right type and amount of personal insurance is a complex process so obtaining financial advice is invaluable.
Life Insurance provides a lump sum pay out in the event of your death. This amount generally tends to be tax free.
Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) also pays a lump sum should you be deemed totally and permanently unable to work due to ill health or injury.
Income Protection replaces up to 75% of your salary or income should you be injured or become too ill to work. The premiums are considered tax deductible.
Trauma Insurance is a lump sum payment made in the case of a short-term medical illness such as heart attack, cancer or stroke. It is paid irrespective of your ability to keep working.
