Loan Protection Insurance

Loan Protection Insurance is designed to cover you against the risk of being unable to make loan repayments as a result of illness, injury or involuntary unemployment.

  • Disability Cover — pays your loan repayments if you can’t work because of a serious illness or injury amounting to disability
  • Life Changing Illness Cover — provides you with immediate cash assistance if you are diagnosed with cancer, heart attack, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, motor neuron disease or early onset dementia
  • Unemployment and Carer cover — can meet your loan repayment obligations if you lose your job or your business fails, or if you need to leave work to care for a dependent child or spouse
  • Hardship Handback Cover — helps you to discharge your motor loan if you have been unemployed for 7 months and you can’t meet repayments from income or savings

Excess periods and other limitations apply, and some causes of disability or unemployment are excluded. For example, Loan Protection Insurance does not provide any cover for disability or unemployment resulting from pre-existing conditions, illness or injury.

Loan Protection Insurance is optional

There is no obligation to buy Loan Protection Insurance. You can obtain similar cover from other insurers.

Cooling off and cancelling

If you buy Loan Protection Insurance and have second thoughts, you can cancel the insurance within 21 days of your loan settlement and obtain a full refund, credited to your loan. After that, you can still cancel Loan Protection and receive a partial refund.

Should I read the Product Disclosure Statement and Financial Services Guide?

Yes, we recommend that you read these documents before buying Loan Protection Insurance.
