Asteron Lifeguard takes awards in two categories in Money magazine


Asteron Lifeguard® takes awards in two categories in Money magazine’s Best of the Best awards 2008

The winners have been announced in the Money magazine Best of the Best awards 2008. And Asteron Lifeguard® is a medal winner.

Asteron® took out Bronze in Money magazine’s Best of the Best award for ’Best Term and TPD Risk Insurance’. The product was awarded the prize for its flexibility, which ’allows you to choose one of three types of TPD definition according to your individual needs’.1

Asteron Lifeguard® Total and Permanent Disablement cover was also the first TPD product to offer a partial payment of 25% of the sum insured (up to maximum $250,000) in the event that you suffer a single loss of limb or eye - recognising the significant financial impact this can have on your life, and the importance of providing our customers with relevant product features.

Asteron Lifeguard’s® Income Advantage with Extras Option took out Silver in Money magazine’s Best of the Best award for ’Best Income Protection Insurance with Features’. This award was attributed to Income Advantage’s features, including choice of disability definition, and our unique 10 Hours definition, which allows claimants to work up to 10 hours per week and still receive their full insurance benefit.

The Money magazine Best of the Best awards are now in their seventh year. Australia’s top financial research companies, including Cannex, review more than 19,000 products from 325 institutions to come up with the top 300 products - 3 in each category.

Asteron is pleased that our Asteron Lifeguard® product range has been recognised for its features and definitions, which provide real value and protection to Australian families.
