Did you know?
- 1 in 3 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer within their lifetime
- medical costs for cancer can cost up to $427,000 per annum in some cases
- 83% of us insure our cars but only 31% of us insure our income.
- Dissatisfaction of insurance claim outcomes is as high as 45% with some basic insurance providers
Research shows that a significant portion of Australians could survive less than one month without their income before needing to sell assets. Everyone loves a good surprise, but it also pays to be prepared if things don’t turn out as expected!
Why have a risk plan in place?
It’s amazing how quickly things change. Families grow, homes are upsized or downsized, kids grow up and move out (or back in!) and everything else in life just happens along the way. How do you look after what’s really important?
When your lifestyle changes, including income and debt levels, your insurance cover should do so as well. A recent report* reveals that 95% of families aren’t adequately insured. This could be because your cover hasn’t kept pace with your needs or because your existing arrangements may only pay a benefit in very limited circumstances, such as automatic insurance inside super or cheap online policies which do not require medical assessment. It is not just the level of cover that is important but also the quality.
If this is you then you should look to address these issues as a matter of urgency – get an Insurance Review.
