Why is Life Insurance Important?
Life Insurance can help ease your worries that your loved ones will be taken care of and may not have to deal with the financial strain that could arise from you no longer being around. They could receive a lump sum up to $1,000,000 if you die or are diagnosed with a terminal illness.
You may want to consider Life Insurance if you're;
- Aiming to assist your family financially e.g Children's education and living costs
- Suffering with or are worried about poor health
- Concerned about risks such as mortgage repayments and debts should you pass away.

An insurer will generally take into account a range of personal and lifestyle attributes when considering your application, including your age, height, weight, medical history, occupation, family health history and smoking status.
Fortunately, most people are surprised to learn that life insurance is actually cheaper than they think. Adequate cover can start from as little as the cost of a takeaway coffee each week.
We’re sorry you’re thinking of cancelling. For policy cancellations or to discuss your situation further, please call us on 13 22 44. If you do cancel, you may qualify for a refund for the unexpired portion of the premium less our cancellation fee and any non-refundable government charges (if applicable).
It’s true that most super funds offer at least a basic level of life insurance, as well as income protection and Total Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance to protect members and their families from the financial hardship of death or a terminal illness.
The level of cover and types of insurance provided through your super are limited. Payments are also sometimes delayed after you’ve made a claim, and coverage ends after you reach a certain age (usually 65 or 70). Read more about the pros and cons about using the life insurance included with your super fund at Money Smart.
You can use our life insurance calculator to better understand your personal needs and identify any gaps in what you’re currently covered for through your super.
Because of the way premiums are calculated, it’s important we understand the health conditions and needs of every Life Insurance applicant. With AAMI Life Insurance, we don’t need you to go to the doctors or get any medical tests. You will be required to answer a number of Health and Lifestyle questions as part of the application, but this should be a quick and easy process without the need to consult a doctor.
You may be worried about the potential of your Life Insurance application being rejected as a result of the answers you provide us, but it’s important you don’t omit or hide information from us. If you do, you may end up not being able to receive payment for a claim you make down the track, when you might have been fully eligible for cover if you’d been up front in the first place.
