WHAT IS PERSONAL ACCIDENT & ILLNESS INSURANCE?

Personal Accident Insurance is a form of cover that protects you financially in the event of an injury sustained from an accident. If an incident occurs, personal accident insurance may provide cover if you are unable to work as a result of your injury. Personal accident policies can also include sickness cover which provides cover if you become sick and are unable to work.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

Cover can be provided against you inability to work and the resulting loss of income due to an accident, illness or accidental death. Most covers we source provide cover 24/7 and are not limited to accidents occurring at work. Cover can be extended for ‘higher risk’ activities such as motorcycle riding, snow and water-skiing, or playing football. These and other high risk activities are generally excluded from cover. If you partake in any such activity please discuss with us to ensure correct covers are in place.

The indemnity period, or the maximum number of weeks that a claim will be paid is generally 104 weeks and excesses will vary between zero and 30 days. Premium reductions can be obtained by electing to shorten your indemnity period and taking longer excess.

Why is it important to have the right insurance?2020-02-19T09:30:11+10:30

It’s important to understand your own risks so you can choose the right insurance product. In Australia, we have over 100 licensed insurers that offer a broad range of insurance products to choose from. Each insurer offers policies with different terms and conditions and exclusions so no two policies are the same. MGA brokers can provide advice on a wide range of general insurance products, both for domestic and business purposes and also have access to insurance policies that are not readily available to consumers.

Shouldn’t I just use an Insurance comparison website?2020-02-19T09:29:31+10:30

Some people turn to insurance comparison sites to look for the cheapest insurance, but that’s not always the best way as price is not the only thing you should consider. The policies you’ll be offered are usually fairly generic and may not meet your individual requirements. MGA brokers can arrange insurance cover on your behalf and provide advice on how to make the most of your insurance budget.

What’s the difference between an insurance agent and an insurance broker?2020-02-19T09:30:24+10:30

The main difference is that an insurance agent is a direct representative of the provider of the insurance policy being offered to you, their responsibility is to sell the products from those insurers and no others. They may be a multi agent where they provide covers from several providers, but they continue to only sell products from those insurers.

An insurance broker on the other hand is able to access many different insurers (excluding those that only sell direct to the public), matching the customer’s needs to the insurance policy and negotiating changes that may be required. Insurance brokers are engaged by the customer and are working on their behalf to source, negotiate, maintain, renew and assist in the claim process. An insurance broker is an advocate for the client, not the insurance company.

Can I pay for my insurance online?2020-02-19T09:30:44+10:30

What is a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS)?2020-02-19T09:31:02+10:30

A Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) provides you with essential information to help you make a decision about whether to buy a particular product. It describes in clear terms the main features and the terms and conditions of the policy. A PDS also provides information about the cooling off period after you purchase the policy in case you change your mind and outlines what you need to do in the unlikely event you have a complaint.
