Life insurance can help ease the financial burden on your dependents in the event of a death. Your family will receive a lump sum that can be used to contribute towards the household, bills, funeral expenses and even children’s education. There are many different types of cover available including term assurance, whole of life, or income on death and Bua Financial Services can help you decide which level of cover is best for your circumstances.
SERIOUS ILLNESS COVER
Serious illness cover, or critical illness cover, insures you in the event that you contract an illness that will drastically change your life. In the event that you become ill and will be out of work for a significant period of time, a lump sum will usually be paid to you two weeks after you receive a diagnosis. Serious illness cover can help buffer against lost income, contribute to medical bills, go towards home adaptations, and even pay off your mortgage.
Mortgage protection cover is designed solely to ensure that your mortgage is paid off in the event of your death. It usually runs for the same term as the mortgage itself, and the amount of cover in place decreases as the amount owed on your mortgage also reduces. The majority of people purchase mortgage protection from their mortgage provider. However, there may be alternative providers who can offer you a better deal if you switch protection policies.
If you become unable to work due to unforeseen illness or injury then income protection provides you with a replacement income. In the event of an accident, sickness or disability, your ability to pay monthly bills and other commitments may be affected. After a deferral period, benefits will be paid to you until you can return to work or until the end of the policy term. This is particularly beneficial if your work or social welfare entitlements may not last as long as you need them to.
