Life Insurance and Permanent Disability

Term Life Insurance provides for your family and dependents if you weren’t around, with a lump sum payment to provide for your family’s long-term financial requirements.

Permanent Disability insurance is a lump sum payment and while there are many different definitions, it is generally paid when you have been advised by a medical specialist that you will never work again.

It is important that you receive advice regarding the level and type of cover that you may require. Working with an adviser from Adastra Financial Services, will ensure you have a qualified local contact to help you.

Trauma/Critical Illness Insurance

Who do you know that has suffered from a heart attack or cancer in their lifetime?  No one ever expects it to happen to them, but imagine hearing the news that you have a serious medical condition. How would you cope financially during the recovery period?  Would the financial stress hinder your progress?

Trauma Cover provides you with a one-off lump sum insurance payment if you’re diagnosed with one of the over 40 specified conditions as per your policy. Covered conditions vary between insurers but usually include things like cancer, heart attack, stroke intensive care, etc.

Our advisors will assist you in ensuring you have the right policy in place, giving you peace of mind.

Types of Critical Illness Claims

Rent / Mortgage cover

If due to ill health or an accident you are unable to work, this type of policy ensures your rent or mortgage is covered. You can insure up to 40% of your income or 110% of your mortgage payment, paid on top of ACC payments, ensuring you are still able to meet your obligations.

Income Protection Insurance

Your greatest asset is your ability to earn an income; after all it’s your ability to earn an income that will pay for your family home, your cars and children’s education.

Income Protection is a monthly benefit that pays you up to 80% of your income and covers you for accidents, illnesses or major traumas. It can pay you up until you return to work (after your waiting period), or if you cannot return, it pays right up to retirement age (currently being age 65).

Health Insurance

Ill health can impact your life, lifestyle and earning ability – making health insurance a very important part of your life.   Health insurance helps give you the security of knowing that you and your family have protection and options available should you, your partner or child experience a health problem.

Health insurance helps give you the security of knowing that you and your family have protection and options available should you, your partner or child experience a health problem.

Five important reasons to have health insurance:

  1. You have a greater choice of when, where and how you get treated, in consultation with your doctor.
  2. No added stress and worry about how to pay for your health bills.
  3. Avoid long delays in waiting for treatment in the public health system.
  4. Cover now for many unknown health issues that may arise in the future.
  5. Access to many of the latest recognised medical procedures and technology.

Get health insurance early

When you’re fit and healthy, it’s hard to imagine that you would ever suffer from a health problem.  But if you purchase health insurance while you’re healthy, you will be covered for many of the health problems that you may encounter in the future.  Some conditions may not be covered if you wait to purchase health insurance until after a condition appears – similar to how you would not be able to purchase insurance for your car if you have just had a crash.
