ING life Insurance has up until recently been provided by ING Australia Limited, one of Australia’s top most fund managers, life insurers and superannuation providers. ING Australia, being created as a joint venture between the global ING Group and the Australian banking company ANZ. ING Group holding 51% of the newly created company and ANZ 49%.

In November 2009, ING Group sold their 51% holding in ING Australia to the ANZ, as a result ING Australia was no longer a part of the ING Group. This brought about ING Australia's change of name in November 2010 to that of OnePath. OnePath now being a fully owned subsidiary of the ANZ Bank and all the former ING DIRECT Life Insurance products now being managed by OnePath.

ING Direct Life Insurance is not currently available via finder. You can visit their website at for more information or compare alternative options available below.

The Merger of ANZ and ING DIRECT Life Insurance: OnePath

As a direct result of the ANZ's latest acquisition, that of ING Australia, ING DIRECT Life Insurance has become OnePath. The new company is now one of Australia's leading providers of investment, superannuation, insurance and retirement products following the lead set by its predecessors which have helped Australians grow and protect their wealth for more than 130 years. Originally as Mercantile Mutual, more recently as ING Australia and now OnePath.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of ANZ, OnePath operates as ANZ's Australian specialist wealth management and protection organisation. Its development of ING DIRECT Life Insurance products into the OnePath brand has resulted in a large range of life insurance offers of different options for different people. Its products can be purchased directly from OnePath or through financial advisers who may be building you a customised protection plan.

Life Insurance Products Offered by OnePath After the ING DIRECT Life Insurance Merger with ANZ

  • OneCare: A policy that includes a range of different types of cover, benefits and features. OneCare provides a comprehensive protection for yourself and your whole family including your health and lifestyle, all bound up in the one document.

Want to Apply for an ING DIRECT Life Insurance Policy? Consider OnePath's Award Winning Insurance Solution

OnePath, just like its predecessor ING DIRECT Life Insurance had done in the past, values and appreciates its customers, staff and the community it operates in. It is committed to acting with the highest standards and in meeting its corporate responsibilities. It also encourages and supports staff involvement in volunteering and charitable activities that support the wider community. OnePath itself actively takes parts in industry forums looking at regulatory and industry changes. It also regularly reviews and conducts research to make sure it is always attuned to changing customer and market requirements.

Research has shown that Australians are generally overly optimistic concerning their financial future. In many ways this is an admirable trait but in other ways it can be a worry, because it also follows that they tend to be under insured on all fronts. Australians are the most under insured people generally of any of the developed countries. Many of us simply don't have sufficient insurance and a lot of us have no insurance whatsoever. It is a worrying thought especially when you take note of the following statistics:

  • Six out of 10 Australians with dependent children don't have enough life insurance to care for their families for more than one year were they to die prematurely.
  • 96% of families lack enough life insurance to protect them for more than ten years.
  • 80% of home owners would not receive a big enough insurance pay out to rebuild their homes if their home were to be destroyed.

The service provided to Australians by ING Life Insurance is being built on by OnePath Life Insurance since ING Australia was wholly taken over by the ANZ Bank. It is all part of the evolving life insurance industry in Australia that means a better and cheaper product in the future.

      Hi Alberta,

      Thanks for your question. Your ability to rollover your insurance will be dependant on the policy and the superfund. It’s a good idea to get in touch with your provider for specific instructions.

      I hope this helps,
