Personal Insurance

The common belief that "it won’t happen to me" often means you have a plan to support your family, pay off your home loans and build wealth for retirement BUT most of us do not have an adequate plan to protect the very thing that generates the wealth—themselves!

Life Insurance, Total & Permanent Disability (TPD) Insurance, Income Protection Insurance (also accident & sickness) and Trauma/Critical Illness cover is designed to protect you and your family.
This important protection is affordable, can be tax deductible and could be funded through Superannuation.

Cook & Cook Financial Services can help you answer the following questions?

  • Do you have enough personal insurances in place?
  • How would your family survive without your income?
  • Can you claim a tax deduction on your premium?
  • Can you use your superannuation fund to pay for your insurance premium?
  • What features of insurance are important to you?
  • Does your insurer have a good claims history?
  • Does your insurer have a solid credit rating?
  • What are you actually covered for?

Underinsurance is a huge problem in Australia. According to the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC): "60 percent of families with dependants don’t have sufficient life insurance to financially care for their family for any more than 12 months should the main breadwinning parent die."

Unfortunately the automatic insurance offerings of most super funds aren't adequate. How would you and your family survive if a major illness like cancer or heart attack or a major accident causing injury were to strike?
