Asteron Lifeguard® enhances its life insurance offer


Why life insurance?

We can't always assume that traumatic or tragic events will only happen to other people. But even if we accept life's realities, it's hard to prepare for the emotional toll that tragedy can take.

Fortunately, we can take action to minimise the otherwise devastating financial impact that serious illness or disablement can have on our lives, or premature death could have on the lives of our family.

How Asteron Lifeguard® can help?

We've just enhanced the Asteron Lifeguard® product range to make sure we provide real benefits to minimise the possible devastating financial impacts during illness, disablement or death.

Highlights of this enhancement include:

Protecting your income
Through Income Protection

  • A new Income Protection product, Income Shield, designed for Self Managed Super Funds and clients looking for a lower cost option.
  • Protect 100% of income by adding the new Recovery Booster Option to Income Protection. The Recovery Booster Option enables clients to protect the remaining 25% of their income not covered by Income Protection. The great news is the premiums for Income Protection and Recovery Booster may be tax deductible in certain circumstances.

Protecting your finances during serious illness or disablement
Through Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) and Recovery Products

  • We have made changes to the way we assess 'own occupation' when a client has recently changed employment and becomes Totally and Permanently Disabled. Clients now have the choice to have their disability assessed against their new occupation or their occupation at the time of application. This is great for clients who are looking for a ‘sea change’, however, this benefit is only available for the first 3 months of any occupation change.

Protecting your dependents in the event of premature death
Through Life Cover

  • Our new Lifestyle Cover option allows clients less than 40 years of age to convert some or all of their Stand Alone or Recovery Stand Alone to Life Cover if they are married or become a parent. The good news is that there are no medical checks to convert.
