Loan Protection Insurance

Attention: open in a new window. Print

It often takes us years of hard work to obtain the things of value to us, whether this is our family, the family home and contents or a car.

An integral part of any financial planning is ensuring that the things you value are protected.

We can offer you top quality cover through our arrangements with CGU Insurance.

Mortgages or loans are often long term commitments, so it makes sense to protect them with Loan Repayment Insurance. Loan Repayment Insurance provides you with the peace of mind that if an unfortunate event, such as your death, disability, involuntary unemployment or trauma occurs, your assets will be safe and your loan repayments will be taken care of.

Please note: Loan repayment insurance can only be taken out when your loan has been approved prior to funding.


  • Cover applies 24 hours a day, 7 days per week
  • Death benefit up to $500,00
  • Disability benefit up to $3,500 per month
  • Involuntary unemployment benefit up to $3,500 per month of unemployment up to $10,500

Involuntary unemployment cover
