NobleOak life insurance

There's no adviser with NobleOak's Premium Life Direct policy, which means no adviser fees. It's good if you're happy to work out how much life insurance you need yourself but less so if you want the security of a financial adviser.

NobleOak life insurance comes with the following benefits:

  • Life insurance. Your beneficiaries (e.g. your family) can receive up to $25,000,000 when you die, subject to underwriting. This is a larger amount than any of the other 25 insurers we reviewed. However, most people probably won't need a life insurance payout this big.
  • Terminal illness benefit. If you're diagnosed with a terminal illness, you can claim all of your life insurance benefit. Most insurers offer this benefit.
  • Financial advice benefit. NobleOak will pay up to $2,000 for the cost of a qualified financial adviser for benefits in excess of $200,000. If you're worried this isn't enough, you might want to opt for NobleOak's My Protection Plan – this comes with a $5,000 financial advice benefit.
  • Grief counselling benefit. Some other insurers offer this. You can get up to $1,000 for grief counselling for you or your loved ones.
  • Premium freeze benefit. If your premium is becoming unaffordable, you can freeze your premium amount so it doesn't increase any more. However, this will lower your cover sum insured.
  • Future increases benefit. This lets you increase your cover amount by the lesser of $100,000 or 20% of the original cover amount without having to provide any further medical evidence.​​

Optional add-ons

You can add the following optional extras onto your NobleOak life insurance policy:

  • Trauma insurance. This gives you up to $2,000,000 of your life insurance payout if you suffer a serious, listed medical condition. To apply: You must be an Australian resident and have an insurable health status at the time of application. The minimum entry age is 18 and the maximum age is 59. Cover expires at 70.
  • Total and permanent disability insurance. This can pay you a lump sum if you become permanently disabled. The benefit will reduce your life insurance cover and after you reach 65, your TPD benefit will be reduced by 10% each year until you are 75. To apply: You must be an Australian resident and have an insurable health status at the time of application. The minimum entry age is 16 and the maximum age is 59.
  • Disability income insurance. This replaces 70% of your lost income up to $30,000 per month if a serious illness or injury forces you to temporarily stop work. To apply: You must be an Australian resident aged between 18 and 55 and have an insurable health status at the time of application. You must also be employed, working at least 20 hours per week and earning no less than $1,500 a month (the minimum insurable income limit).

See how NobleOak's claim acceptance rate stacks up against other life insurers

This is the percentage of claims a life insurer pays out. It's based on data from Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) covering the 12-month period from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022. Taken from 18 Australian life insurance underwriters (of direct policies).

What is excluded?

All policies have exclusions. These are some of the main exclusions NobleOak will not cover and they're all very similar to other insurers:

  • Suicide occurring within 13 months of you taking out a policy
  • Intentional self-injury or attempted suicide while sane or insane within the first 13 months
  • Any exclusion, which is specific to you and noted in any Special Acceptance Terms when you sign up
  • Addiction to intoxicating liquor or drugs
  • Your voluntary participation in a criminal act

For a full list of exclusions, read the product disclosure statement (PDS).
