The benefits of financial advice

Most of us wouldn’t think twice about going to a mechanic for our car, or to a doctor to talk about our health. But when it comes to personal finance, up to 80% of Australians have never seen a financial adviser1.

A financial adviser is a qualified professional who works with you face-to-face, to assess your financial situation and identify your goals. By knowing where you want to go in life, an adviser can provide strategic advice and design a wealth creation plan to help you get there.  

Of course, your plan for the future is only as good as your ability to pay for it. So a financial adviser will also research the market and find the right life insurance for you, to protect the life you’ve planned for.

They can also provide tailored recommendations on:

  • the right amount of cover for your lifestyle;
  • the best way to structure your policy;
  • whether to have insurance cover inside or outside of super;
  • high cover requirements for people with significant financial obligations; 
  • how to navigate the underwriting process; and   
  • what to do at claims time.

As part of their ongoing relationship with you, a financial adviser can also conduct an annual review of your life insurance, to check if your insurance products and level of cover still match your lifestyle.

Everything you need to know about TAL Accelerated Protection

Types of cover

Life Insurance

Life Insurance is a lump-sum payment to look after your loved ones if you die, or are diagnosed with a terminal illness.

People often consider how much they have left to pay off their mortgage and their other debts, their children's future education costs and the lifestyle they want their loved ones to have if they pass away.

Critical Illness

Having a serious illness is something many of us will experience. Critical Illness insurance is a lump-sum payment to help support you after an insured illness such as malignant cancer, severe heart attack or stroke that results in neurological deficit.

When considering Critical Illness insurance people often think about their level of private health insurance and Income Protection, and how much they need to live if they can't work, to maintain their standard of living while they recover.

Accelerated Protection also offers comprehensive Child’s Critical Illness cover which will give you choices to take time off work to focus on family. And Female Critical Illness cover which is tailored for women by covering a number of female-specific medical risks.

Income Protection Insurance

Many Australians don’t consider protecting their ability to earn the income that funds their life and those of their families. How long could you afford to cover your expenses and maintain your lifestyle without draining your savings?

Income Protection Insurance can provide you with a benefit to replace your loss of income, if you can’t work due to a sickness or injury, to help with your living expenses.
Income Protection Insurance premiums are generally tax deductible, however claim payments are subject to income tax.

Income Protection Insurance provides a replacement income to help you and your family meet the cost of living. It can be tailored depending on your time of life, expenses and income.

Note: Benefit and waiting periods apply.

Total and Permanent Disability Insurance

If you become permanently disabled and can’t work again, your life choices become very limited. TPD Insurance gives you a lump-sum payment to improve your quality of life, if you suffer permanent disability that either prevents you ever working again, or results in you being unable to perform some of the important activities of daily living.

When considering TPD Insurance people often think about: how much they’ll need to live on, medical expenses and what help or family assistance is needed.
