It is important to put measures in place as early as possible if you want to make sure that your family's financial future is not compromised as a result of unexpected and unavoidable events, which is why taking out a MLC Life Cover Insurance plan sooner rather than later is a good idea in order to enjoy the maximum benefits.

- Payout of the benefit to your family if you die, which means that whilst they will still have to cope with the grief of your death they will not have the added worry of how they will keep a roof over their heads, pay for food, pay the bills, and meet other essential expenses
