What is Group life cover?

When an employee dies, it can have a profound and long-lasting effect on your workplace, as well as on their family and friends. As a responsible employer, our Group life cover is a great way to provide a lump sum to help out your employees’ loved ones.

What is it?

Group life cover is simple – and smart. It pays a lump sum to reduce the financial impact of death. Plus, if an employee is diagnosed with a terminal illness and has less than 12 months to live, you can apply for early payment. We can also arrange $15,000 immediately upon a death to cover funeral and other costs (which will be deducted from the death benefit).

Why should you get it?

It’s a great way to support staff through the tough times and provides employees with a bit of certainty that their families (and finances!) can be supported in the event of their death.

What’s the deal?

You pay an amount of money (called a ‘premium’) for a Group policy. The policy is a contract so you know exactly what we’ll pay out for. As long as you keep paying for your insurance with us, and the policy terms and condition have been met, we’ll pay out for everything we agreed. We’ll also ask for updated employee details at a set annual date, and this will be used to calculate the premium and administer the policy each year.
