Life insurance is a financial tool that provides financial protection for an individual’s loved ones in the event of their unexpected death. While it may not be something that people like to think about, the fact is that none of us know when our time will come and having a life insurance policy can provide peace of mind and financial security for our loved ones.
Here are five reasons why everyone should consider purchasing a life insurance policy:
In conclusion, life insurance is an important financial tool that can provide financial protection for an individual’s loved ones in the event of their unexpected death. Whether you are single, married, or have children, it is important to consider the financial implications of your death and take steps to protect your loved ones. By purchasing a life insurance policy, you can ensure that your loved ones will be financially taken care of and have the resources they need to move forward.
Having life insurance inside your superannuation can be a convenient and cost-effective way to protect your loved ones in the event of your death. When you have life insurance inside your superannuation, the premiums for the policy are paid using your superannuation funds, which can be a tax-effective way to fund your life insurance coverage.
Additionally, having life insurance inside your superannuation can be a more affordable option compared to purchasing a standalone life insurance policy, as the premiums may be lower due to the bulk buying power of the superannuation fund. It is important to carefully review the terms and conditions of any life insurance policy inside your superannuation, and to ensure that it meets your needs and the needs of your loved ones.
Know your rights.
If you are terminally ill, with less than 24 months to live, you may be able to access your life insurance prior to your death.
If a loved one has passed, you may be entitled to claim some or all of their life insurance policy.
If you are yet to make a life insurance claim, you are entitled to legal representation and Littles can help you.
If you have already lodged a claim and it has been rejected by a superannuation fund or insurer, you may be entitled to have the decision reviewed through an internal resolution procedure.
If your complaint has been upheld, you may be able to litigate in a court or lodge a complaint with the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
There are strict time limits to challenge an insurer’s decision, so it’s important you seek legal advice as soon as possible.
