Today the life insurance industry and the Investment and Financial Services Association (IFSA) launched Lifewise to help combat Australia’s chronic underinsurance problem.
The Lifewise campaign is aimed at educating Australians to take appropriate steps to understand the risks and protect themselves from the financial hardship that can result from accident, sickness or death.
The Lifewise website www.lifewise.org.au can give you the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about life insurance. It’s got great stories about insurance - and underinsurance - from people just like you, and an insurance needs calculator so you can get an idea of ‘how much is enough’.
Lifewise is expected to be a three to five year campaign with a range of activity planned for the coming financial year including further research, working closely with all lifewsie supporters and online campaigns. Asteron is proud to support Lifewise.
