There’s certainly no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to insurance cover
Each of your clients has their own unique needs. With under insurance prevailing as a major issue facing Australians, it’s never been more important to find the right policy for the right client, funded in the right way.
Our panel of quality insurers, AIA Australia, TAL and Zurich, provide you and your clients with the freedom to choose the best policy and fund the premiums through their IOOF Pursuit Personal Superannuation account or IOOF Personal Super.
Benefits of retail insurance
- Greater certainty of stability of cover over the life of the policy. Retail Policies are guaranteed renewable meaning cover will be renewed to the client’s expiry age irrespective of changes to their health, employment pastimes or smoking status
- Each insurer has its own features and benefits allowing you to tailor your clients’ cover specifically to their needs
- Premiums are deducted from your clients’ cash accounts making cover simple, affordable and less likely to lapse.
- Level premiums are available allowing premiums to be fixed at the age of the client when cover commences. While level premiums are initially more expensive than stepped premiums, clients with cover needs of more than 12 years will be better off in the long term.
- Super-linked policies - cover that is split inside and outside of super giving clients’ greater peace of mind should a claim event not meet a superannuation condition of release.
- The ability to super-link children’s cover (outside super) giving parents comfort that there will be a tax free lump sum to draw on should they need to take unpaid leave to care for and support a seriously ill child.
