Company information

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*). Today we are proud to be part of the Suncorp Group.
