Life Care Cover provides a lump sum payment in the event of terminal illness or death. The lump sum paid is the amount for which your client is insured. Subject to underwriting rules, there are no limits on the amount your client can be insured for.
This type of insurance is also known as term insurance.
You can combine it with Accidental Death Cover, TPD Cover, Trauma Cover, Child Cover and/or Income Protection.

When is a benefit paid?
Life Care pays a lump sum when the life insured dies or becomes terminally ill.
Take Rob for example, a project manager with two children. Rob wasn’t too concerned about his family’s financial situation because they had superannuation, insurance in super and some savings. However, Rob’s wife did have concerns, so they sought the advice of a financial adviser. Rob was surprised to find out he only had $270,000 life cover in his super fund’s insurance plan.
The adviser recommended he put in place a financial plan that included Life Care to top up the life insurance he held in his super fund.
Just as well he did because, sadly, two years later Rob died in a car accident. Rob's legal representative submits the full death certificate and claim forms to CommInsure, and because Rob's death meets the conditions of the policy as disclosed in the CommInsure Protection Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), CommInsure paid Rob's family a lump sum of $700,000. This covered the mortgage and all of the children's educational costs.
Imagine the financial consequences for Rob’s family if he hadn’t had Life Care?
