Protection for what matters most

When you decide to purchase life insurance, you’re protecting what matters most: your family, the life you share, and the future you’ve planned together. Life insurance gives you and your family confidence that you’re protected long-term.

At Asteron Life, we’ve been protecting Australian families since 1833. Along the way, we’ve evolved to meet the changing needs of generations of Australians, but we’ve always stayed true to our spirit of service and belief that life insurance protects not only the future: it also gives you confidence and security today.

Our insurance product – Asteron Life Complete – offer comprehensive protection that you and your adviser can tailor to suit your needs, with a number of features and benefits to make sure you’re getting the most from your cover. 

Asteron Life Complete means:

Flexibility if things change

If your situation changes – you buy a new home or start a family, for example – Asteron Life Complete lets you increase your cover amount without additional medical checks, so you can always be confident you’ve got the right amount of cover for you and your family.

Our approach to claims

If you need to make a claim, we understand it’s likely to be at a difficult time. We do all we can to make things as easy as possible and assign a dedicated claims manager to each claim. They’ll be with you every step of the way, focused on supporting you and your family and processing your claim as quickly as possible.

Rewards for healthy living
We want to encourage everyone to live the healthiest life they can, which is why we reward customers through our Healthy Life Option and Healthy Plus Option. The programs offer a discount on your premiums when:

  • Your body mass index (BMI) is 28 or below
  • You’re a non-smoker (or have been for at least five years)
  • And you meet the entry age criteria: 30–55 (age next birthday) for Healthy Life Option2 and 30–50 for Healthy Plus Option3

The Healthy Life Option offers 10% off stepped premiums for Life and/or TPD policies2. If you meet the eligibility criteria, the discount will be applied automatically for the life of your policy – with no additional tests or checks required. 

The Healthy Plus Option offers up to 20% off your Life insurance premiums3 if you meet certain health and lifestyle criteria, and you can keep the discount going year-after-year by having an annual QuickCheck and MBA blood test. 

If you decide not to have those tests, your discount will reduce by 1% each year until it reaches 10% – the 10% discount will remain in place for the life of the policy.
