How Premiums Work

Once you’ve chosen the type of insurance you need, you can choose which premium structure best suits you. You’re able to make different selections for different insurance types, and you can also split the cover between differing premium structures for a single type of insurance.

Stepped Premium

Your benefits remain the same and your premium will increase annually, depending on your age.

Level Premium

Your premiums remain the same and your premium will be based on your age at the starting date of your insurance. When you renew, your premium will only vary if a change has been made to premium rates.

Tax advantages

There are various tax advantages in holding insurance, depending on:

  1. The entity that owns the policy, be it a super fund, company, trustee, partners in a partnership or sole trader
  2. The purpose for which the policy is held, for example revenue protection or asset (debt) protection purposes
  3. The type of policy – life, Total and Permanent Disability, critical illness, income protection or business expense insurance

These factors will determine the exact tax concessions available on the policies taken out, whether the benefits of the policy are assessed as income and if the eventual benefit of the policy is subject to capital gains tax.
