About us

We have been a life insurance specialist for more than 175 years.

In 1833 we wrote the first life insurance policy in Australia. And we paid the first claim shortly after. True to the promise we make to our customers, we’ve been paying claims ever since.

In 2014, we* paid more than $309 million in total claims to around 3,574 policyholders Australia-wide. (SLSL 2014*). We can protect your lifestyle, and your long-term financial security with life insurance. But more than that, we want to make your life better today.

To us, life insurance is all about ‘celebrating life’ and getting the most out of today – knowing that if anything ever does go wrong, you’re covered.

Ready to celebrate life? Then you’ve come to the right place.
