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.

Each of the optional benefits also have some exclusions and limitations which are outlined in the Product Disclosure Statement.

In addition, in some cases the insurer will agree to 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.
