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 – meets your loan repayments, if you are unable to work or perform your normal work duties as a result of an injury or illness.
  • Involuntary Unemployment – meets loan repayments up to $1,500 per month, if you lose your job due to circumstances beyond your control.

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.

We have not taken your objectives, needs or financial situation into account in offering Loan Protection Insurance, and it is up to you to decide whether Loan Protection Insurance is appropriate for your individual circumstances.

To help you with this, Loan Protection Insurance is fully explained in two important documents:

  • Financial Services Guide (FSG): Explains who provides Loan Protection Insurance, and supplies other important information including commission payments and how to resolve any disputes.
