Insuranceline Life Insurance: Our verdict

  • The most you can be insured for is $1,500,000. For the average Aussie this may be fine, but if you need more, other providers go as high as $15,000,000.
  • Enjoy added peace of mind that your policy comes fully underwritten; more than half of the 19 brands on our site won't offer this.

  • You can't boost your policy with total permanent disability cover and there's no child benefit option.
  • Other life plans from the likes of Zurich and Medibank go as high as $15,000 for an advance benefit payout for your family if you pass away (Insuranceline offers $10,000; to get $15,000, you'll need to get Insuranceline Funeral Insurance).

    is Asthma a pre existing condition covered after a waiting period and is it only paid if the person is “symptom free” during the waiting period?
