A sad but all too common experience
Often, when a couple set up life insurance to protect each other, one person has their application accepted, but the other is refused because of a pre-existing health condition. Both are left feeling that a wedge has been driven between them and that their needs and choices were not understood, honoured or valued. At unUsualrisks.com.au our mission is to change this.

When does life insurance payout?
Life insurance will normally payout upon the death of the life insured or diagnoses of a terminal, illness in the last 24 months.
- It can help their dependents cope financially if you unexpectedly pass away, and
- It can help you in practical financial ways if you suffer a terminal illness
Many people don't know that high-quality life insurance also pays out upon the diagnosis of a terminal illness in the remaining 24 months, making it a strong part of a backup plan.
Most people don't know 30% of life insurance claims are made for terminal illness
