It’s also important to be aware that there are several factors that influence the cost of premiums, including:

  • The benefit amount. The higher the benefit, the more you pay for cover.
  • Any optional covers you include. For example, adding TPD and Trauma Cover to Superior Life Insurance Cover will increase your premium.
  • Your age. Insure Me Now’s Super Life Insurance Cover and SMSF Life Insurance Cover policies feature stepped premiums, so the cost of cover increases as you get older.
  • Your gender. Cover generally costs more for men.
  • Your smoker status. Smokers are exposed to a wide range of health risks, so non-smokers pay lower premiums.
  • Your occupation and pastimes. If you work in a dangerous job or engage in risky pastimes, the cost of cover will rise.
  • Your health. While there are no medical or blood tests, you’ll need to provide some information about your health when you apply for Superior Life Insurance Cover.
