Life Insurance 101- Why is Life Insurance so important?

Life insurance is all about giving the people you care about most, financial security if you’re no longer alive to support them.

  • With life insurance, when you die, (or become terminally ill), your nominated loved one(s) can receive a lump sum payment.
  • They can use this to continue living the life you want them to. Mortgages can be paid out, children’s private education fees paid, people aren't forced to leave the home or area where they have been used to living and frail aged or special needs people in your life can be cared for.

If you’re in business, it can mean that if you unexpectedly pass away, your business debts are paid out and that the business doesn't have to be wound up or forced into a sale.

  • It can also mean that you (or your business partners) are not forced into continuing business with the remaining family of business partners. The possibilities are as individual as your needs.

Meet Jennifer and Amber - partners for life.

Jennifer has spent the last 8 years climbing the corporate ladder in a busy city law firm and made senior associate last Christmas.

Her obsessive attention to detail means she's particularly good at what she does but the possibility of having to work through the fine print details of a life insurance policy is not something she's looking forward to.

Jennifer enjoys learning about products and services in her own time, doing her own comparisons and research and then preparing her list of hard-hitting questions, before talking to anyone about them.

  • Single

    Age is no indicator of relationship status or financial responsibility.

    • You can be young and starting out or older and established; and both enjoying living the single life.
    • You might be single, single again, sometimes single, single with kids, single with pets or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to being single in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

    And it's your single life, so live it your way.

  • Partnered

    Sharing life and love with someone can be twice as exciting.

    • You might be partnered, partnered with pets, officially de facto, officially married (yay!), splitting expenses but sharing life, or joining incomes and combining financial lives too.
    • You might be together but living apart, working towards a future with kids, thinking about fostering, adopting, IVF or surrogacy; or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to being partnered in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

    There's no right or wrong way to live a purposeful life, just what works for you both.

  • Parenting

    For today's LBGTI families, there are no accidental families.

    • You might be parenting and single with kids, parenting solo with kids, parenting and partnered with kids, (yours, theirs and ours), dual parents with kids, co-parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, or even adoptive parents of kids with additional needs (just beautiful!).
    • You might be a lesbian co-parenting couple or super involved Guncles or Aunties. You might not even identify with the broader LGBTI community but find yourself a parent in a same-sex relationship, or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to parenting in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

    However you're doing it, Love makes a family.
