Get insurance

Knowing what insurance to take out is all about knowing what’s important to you

Insurance is our policy





Is it yours?

Insurance is designed to protect you, your car, your home and contents, your family and your assets — even some things you may not have thought about, like what happens if you have an accident and are unable to work.

If things do go wrong, your insurer may either repair or replace the items that have been lost or damaged, or provide a cash settlement, depending on the type of insurance and the terms of your policy.

What should be insured?

When thinking about what to insure, take stock of all the things in your life that are meaningful to you, financially or otherwise. Consider factors, such as your age, marital status and lifestyle and take into account your assets, possessions and dependents.

Generally, if you can’t risk losing it or making a loss on it, you should consider insuring it.

General insurances help us protect ourselves and the things we value, such as our homes, our cars and our valuables, from the financial impact of risks, big and small – from fire, flood, storm and earthquake, to theft, car accidents, travel mishaps – and even from the costs of legal action against us.

It’s important to choose the right level of cover by choosing the right kind of policy with the features you need.

Life insurance

Paying a premium

What's a premium

Your premium is the amount you pay an insurer for insurance cover. Your premium reflects what the insurer believes is the likelihood you will make a claim and also includes the insurer’s business costs, state and territory stamp duties and levies, and the Goods and Services Tax (GST). These taxes can add a significant amount to the sum the insurer requires you to pay for the policy.

Is it really worth it?

While insurance can seem expensive, not having the right level of cover can end up costing you more. Finding the balance between the cover and a premium you’re comfortable with is the most important step to avoid any surprises about your cover when a claim is lodged.

Personal Insurance


The amount you have to pay is shown in the policy schedule, which the insurer will send you when the cover has been arranged.
