Your partner can also be included

Real Family Life Cover can provide cover for you and your partner, even if one of you stays at home and cares for the home and children on a full, or part time basis.

Cover options to choose from

You may feel that your situation requires some additional benefits. Family Life Cover offers a range of additional benefits to applicants. They are:

  • Accidental Death Insurance.  This option will pay an additional benefit amount from $50,000 to $500,000 to your beneficiaries if death is caused by accident. This is paid on top of your Family Life Cover Benefit Amount.
  • Serious Illness Insurance for specified conditions. Will provide a lump sum benefit if the policy owner suffers serious conditions defined in the policy. This includes Heart Attack; Stroke; or Malignant Cancer or Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery.
  • Total & Permanent Disability Insurance A benefit will be paid under this option if you are unable to continue working because of an injury or illness, or if you were to suffer the loss of your eyesight or certain limbs. It will also give you financial protection if you lose your independent existence and become dependent on others to look after you.
  • Children's insurance. Your cover can be extended to cover the cost of looking after your children with things like medical expenses and school tuition if your child was to suffer one of the defined illnesses or injuries. The cover will also pay out on the occurrence of your child suffering an Accidental Death.

What isn't covered?

Real Insurance will not pay out a life insurance benefit if the life insured dies or has a Terminal Illness (directly or indirectly) as a result of a self-inflicted injury within 13 months of:

    • cover commencing under the policy
    • the date that cover is increased
    • the policy being reinstated after previously being cancelled.

In addition, in some cases the insurer will agree a special term with you when you take out cover. This special term will exclude certain events and conditions from your policy’s coverage, for example participating in bungee jumping, so you won’t be able to claim for these special terms.
