Premium payment structures

One particular policy option which every person must make a decision on is which premium payment structure best suits their needs.
Australian insurers offer the following structures:

The most common payment structures are stepped or level, with blended premiums, introduced more recently.

Free children’s insurance

Select insurers offer premium free children’s insurance which can be added onto your policy.

Built-in funeral advancement benefit

Most Australian insurers offer some type of funeral advancement benefit which can be used to pay for funeral expenses.

Claim proceeds and beneficiaries

The purpose of a life insurance policy is to leave funds to your loved ones when you pass away, which is why it is vital that you nominate a beneficiary (or beneficiaries). Doing this will ensure the right person will receive your life insurance proceeds.

Stand alone or Bundled cover

Many life insurance policies in Australia offer either a standalone or bundled insurance option.

A stand-alone policy has its own sum insured, whereas a bundled policy shares the same or lesser sum insured with either trauma or TPD insurance.
