In financial difficulty? We’re here.

In financial difficulty? We’re here.

We’re here to support you

The value of life insurance is the certainty it provides in protecting what matters most to you.

As your life insurer, we believe it’s our responsibility to help you maintain this certainty as long as you need it – which is why we offer support to our customers through periods of financial hardship.

We offer flexible product and payment options

OneCare offers a range of flexible covers and payment options to help give you breathing space when you need it, summarised in the table below. Your latest Policy Schedule will show you what you’re currently covered for.

To discuss your options for lowering your premium, or for anything else to do with your cover, please speak to your financial adviser, or call us on 133 667. 

1. New options available for financial hardship

To help customers experiencing genuine financial hardship during this period to manage tightened household budgets, we have developed two new temporary premium affordability options:

COVER SUSPENSION

Cover Suspension is a temporary offer to suspend cover and premiums, for the whole policy, for a period of between three to six months - without the obligation of going through underwriting again (health or financial) to reinstate the cover.

It’s important to know that there is no cover under the policy for conditions arising during the Cover Suspension period. Additionally, if this option is taken up, the Cover Bounce-back option will no longer be available to you.

Your policy must have been in force for at least 24 months before the option commences. This option may be withdrawn from offer at any time.

COVER BOUNCE-BACK

Cover bounce-back is a temporary offer for customers not on claim, to reduce the amount insured on a stepped premium policy. Cover can be reduced to any amount above the minimums stated in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). The policy owner will then be able to reinstate their amount insured back to the value held immediately before Cover bounce-back, without a re-assessment of their health or financial circumstances.

If a claim condition arises during the cover bounce-back period, a reduced cover amount will reduce any benefits payable. Additionally, if this option is taken up, the Cover Suspension option will no longer be available to you.

Your policy must have been in force for at least 24 months before the option commences. This option may be withdrawn from offer at any time.

2. Additional options to lower your premium

We recommend speaking to your financial adviser before acting on any of these options, to ensure you understand the impacts they may have on your cover should you need to claim.
Income protection policies have unique options to assist with affordability:
  • An Unemployment Premium Waiver available for Professionals Cover where premiums will be waived for up to three months for involuntary unemployment.
  • Pregnancy Premium Waiver for up to 3 months (applies to Essentials Cover     only)  
  • Premium Pause for up to 12 consecutive months applies to Professionals Cover only)
  • Premium and Cover Suspension Benefit (applies to Essentials and Income Cover SuperLink)
