When do I need personal insurance cover?

It's all about feeling in control of your future, knowing your options and taking responsibility for how you want to live your life.

Most people particularly need life insurance when:

  • they are in a long term relationship,
  • have joint responsibilities such as a mortgage/rent with someone else,
  • have children, (or nephews and nieces),
  • have family,
  • who are in business with others,
  • who have frail aged or elderly parents,
  • good friends
  • or even charities that they wish to provide a legacy for.

The idea is a life insurance benefit payout will support a partner or family financially if the policyholder dies at a time when they are relying on their income. It could be used to cover things such as mortgage repayments, replace the deceased person’s salary, or pay childcare or education expenses. The options are endless when you have resources to help.

George, experienced logistics manager

Meet George - logistics co-ordination ninja

He spends most of his work day chasing boxes, deadlines and freight companies running late.

His partner is the love of his life (and drives him crazy at times). George has a stepdaughter who he adores and a well-earned reputation as a bit of Weekend DIY Tragic, relentlessly renovating his townhouse.

George’s shift-work is often unpredictable, so living closer to work and cafes makes his life easier.

Lately, here's beeing thinking about the hard emotional decision, How much is enough?.

  • 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 LGBTQI+ 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 LGBTQI+ 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 LGBTQI+ 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 LGBTQI+ 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 LGBTQI+ community, there's really no such thing as average.

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