Cover Options Available from Clearview

Depending on your insurance needs, you can choose between the following products:

Life insurance

This policy will pay a lump-sum benefit amount in the event of your death (accident or any other cause) or if you’re diagnosed as terminally ill with less than 12 months to live. You also have an extra Motor Vehicle Accident benefit built into the contract. This policy can be purchased directly or through a Clearview financial adviser.

Income Protection

The Clearview Income Protection pays an ongoing monthly benefit of up to 75% of your pre-disability income in the event you can’t work as a result of sickness or injury. This benefit is paid monthly.

Trauma Insurance

This benefit allows you to maintain a certain quality of life when suffering from a specific illness or injury as defined by the terms of the policy. Upon diagnosis, you will receive a lump-sum benefit that can be used to cover the cost of treatment, as well as pay off debt or finance an extended leave from work.

Accidental Death Cover

A lump sum benefit amount will be paid out to your beneficiaries in the event of your death from an accident. The maximum pay-out for this benefit is $1 million ($500,000 from age 56).

Funeral Insurance

In the event of death or diagnosis of terminal illness, this benefit pays out a lump-sum to cover funeral costs. You can choose the level of cover, from $5000 to up to $50,000 ($10,000 from age 54). Customers with policies dating back 10 years are eligible for a 10% discount. Your cover amount increases every year to keep up with inflation.

Some questions you might have about your Clearview Insurance

Here are a few questions and answers about Clearviews’ policies.

Q. Do I need to go through a Clearview Financial Adviser?

  • A. Not necessarily. You have the option to buy your policies directly, and as long as you’re a permanent Australian resident between 18 and 65 years of age, acceptance is guaranteed for most benefit options. However, going through a financial adviser means you’re able to tailor your policy with the benefits most relevant to your personal situation.

Q. When applying for a policy, do I need to submit blood samples?

  • A. No. You can apply for Clearview policies online without having to take blood tests. Acceptance is guaranteed when applying for Accidental Death, Injury Cash and Funeral Insurance policies.

Q. Who is eligible for Clearview policies?

  • A. Eligibility varies depending on the policy and the amount of cover you wish to purchase, but in most cases, any permanent Australian resident between 16 and 69 years old can apply for cover.

Q. What is the Indexation benefit?

  • A. This means that your benefit amount will increase automatically by the greater of either 5% or the increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). In short, your total benefit amount increases every year so that the value of the policy isn’t affected by increases in inflation.

Q. How do I make sure my policy stays up-to-date?

  • A. As long as it doesn’t increase your premiums, any product enhancements will automatically be applied to your policy.

Q. Who can be covered under the terms of my policy?

  • A. As a policy owner, you have your own life covered, or the life of a family member or business partner. You can have up to five people insured on one policy, except in the case where your policy is held under Clearview LifeSolutions Super option.

Q. How can I structure my cover?

  • A. You can apply for standalone cover that operates independently from other cover you might have. In the event of a pay-out from the standalone cover, your other benefits are not affected. All cover options can be purchased as standalone cover except Child cover and Parent cover.

Q. Can I link my cover?

  • A. You have the option of Linked and Flexi Link cover. With the Linked option, you pay a lower premium than you would for a standalone option, but all cover is reduced when a benefit amount is paid out. Flexi-Link allows you to link two policies and name different policy owners.

Q. What is superannuation?

  • A. Holding some – or all – of your policies in superannuation can be a good way to save on tax and finance your instalments from superannuation. You can choose to manage the super yourself or go through the Clearview LifeSolutions Super where your Life, Accidental Death, Total and Permanent Disability, Accidental Total and Permanent Disability, Income Protection, Income Protection Plus and Accidental Income Protection Cover are held in the Clearview Plan.

      Hi Alfredo,

      Clearview does not state any specific exclusion for accidental deaths that occur due to lightning. However, it should be noted that there is general exclusion for “intentional self-inflicted acts” within the first 13 months of:

      -When cover starts
      -When your cover amount increases
      -When your cover is reinstated

      I hope this helps,
