The benefits of bundled cover in life insurance
If you need the protection of multiple insurance products, bundling might be the solution. Bundling enables you to save time while earning a reduction in your total premium.
What is bundling insurance?
You can think of bundling as a product package for insurance. It allows you to purchase more than one insurance product from a single provider.
One such key bundle could be the trio of income protection, life insurance, and total permanent disability (TPD) cover. This bundle could cover you for a wide range of scenarios.
While income protection provides for a temporary inability to earn money, TPD provides for a life-long injury—and life insurance helps ensure that your loved ones will be looked after, in the event of your death.
What are the benefits of bundling insurance?
Bundling helps reduce the time and hassle associated with buying multiple insurance policies. Instead of having to communicate with various providers about various products, you pay a single provider for all the products you need—usually in one, straight-forward premium, paid fortnightly, monthly, or annually.
And whenever you need to seek advice or make a change to one of your policies, you only have to deal with one provider.
If you choose to bundle your cover, you may also have more options available to you. For example, if you bundled TPD with Life Insurance, you may have Life Buy Back available.
How does bundling insurance affect your premiums?
At times, bundling results in a reduction in the cost of your total premium—whether you buy two products or several.
What are the benefits of standalone insurance?
Standalone means that your insurances are not linked together; therefore you can keep your insurances independent. A benefit of choosing to structure your policy in this way is that if you make a claim there is no effect on the other insurances Benefit Amounts. If you don’t want to have an impact on your Benefit Amount, you can still purchase one, two, three, or all four insurances independently and receive the full Benefit Amount on acceptance of your claim^, however you may not receive a reduced premium that the product issuer might have offered if you bundled your policies.
