Why do I need life insurance?

Life insurance provides financial protection for your loved ones in the event of your death. It can help cover expenses such as funeral costs, outstanding debts, mortgage payments, and education expenses, and provide income replacement for your family.

How much life insurance coverage do I need?

Determining the appropriate amount of life insurance coverage is a personalized process considering several factors. These include your income, outstanding debts, anticipated future expenses, and the financial needs of your dependents. As part of our advisory process, we meticulously analyze these aspects to ascertain the optimal coverage that suits your specific circumstances and provides adequate protection for your loved ones.

How do I choose the right insurance company?

As a financial adviser, I conduct independent research and compare insurance companies in New Zealand. I consider financial strength, customer service reputation, policy options, and premium affordability. I provide detailed research reports to help clients make informed decisions about life insurance coverage.

Who will get the claim money after I Die?

Once you pass away, the funds from your life insurance policy are usually given to the beneficiaries that you have designated in the policy. These beneficiaries can be individuals or entities, including family members, loved ones, or charitable organizations. It is important to regularly update your beneficiaries to ensure that any changes in your circumstances or preferences are reflected in the policy.

What if my premiums increase?

Understanding the reasons behind your premium increase is crucial. In the insurance industry, some policies have premium increases linked to inflation, product pricing, and age. However, we offer policies with guaranteed locked premiums for a set period. With our expert advisory process, we conduct a comprehensive analysis to present you with these options and help you choose the policy that best fits your specific needs and desires.
