Loan Protection Insurance

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Covering your commitments if the unexpected happens

There are all sorts of reasons you might want to borrow money. It could be for a new car, a boat, to consolidate debt, or for a much needed holiday. And even though repaying the loan is a significant medium or long-term commitment, it’s one you’ll have weighted up and are ready for.

What you may not be so prepared for are the unforeseen events life can deal us – accidents, illness, or involuntary unemployment – all of which bring pressure and uncertainty. Covering any loss of income and additional expenses they cause would be bad enough, without worrying about the burden of loan repayments as well.

Competitive, convenient cover backed by QBE

A choice of cover options

Depending on your own circumstances and dependents, you can tailor your Loan Protection policy to provide cover in a range of situations.

Life
In the event of your death, the outstanding balance of your loan will be paid in full, up to a maximum of $100,000.

Trauma
You are automatically covered up to $10,000 in the event of major diagnosed diseases and conditions, including chronic kidney failure, heart attack, coronary artery surgery, stroke, major organ transplant and cancer. It’s not a loan repayment, but an additional benefit proportionate to the amount of cover you select. You may elect to increase this cover to a maximum of $50,000.

Disability
If you become unable to work due to illness or injury, this ensures your monthly loan repayments will be met.

Involuntary Unemployment
Should you involuntarily lose your job, this cover provides loan repayments, up to a maximum $7,500.
