Many of our customers, when taking out a life insurance policy, are thinking about protecting their family financially if “the worst should happen.”
And ensuring that your family is financially secure if something happens to you is the main purpose of a life policy.
Kids cover can support you financially if your kids need you
If your child (or grandchild) suffers from a serious illness or injury, it could have a big impact on your family’s time and finances.
Kids cover is an optional extra on many life insurance policies, that allows you to insure your children as well as yourself, under your policy.
If your child is diagnosed with one of the listed conditions, your Kids Cover is paid out in a lump sum that you can use to cover your income if you need to take time off
How Kids Cover works
Different insurers will have different Kids Cover options. With Asteron Life’s policy, you can choose to add $50,000 Kids Cover for free, to cover your children or grandchildren. If you want Kids Cover, each child you want cover for will need to be named and underwritten individually.
If you want more, you can choose to add up to $200,000 of Kids Cover for only a very small premium.
You can talk to your adviser about adding Kids Cover to your policy
We know it can be unsettling to add insurance cover for your children – no one wants to think about anything happening to their kids.
We all hope you will never need it, but adding $50,000 of Kids Cover to your policy is free, and it means that if anything does happen, you can be there for your family without worrying about money.
