Trauma Insurance 

A serious illness puts stress on your mental and emotional wellbeing. It can be financially devastating for you and your family, even after your recovery. It makes sense to cover yourself if illness means you can’t work for some time.

Trauma Insurance provides a one-off, lump sum payment if one of the insured trauma events were to happen to you.

Trauma events can include being diagnosed with advanced cancer, or having a major heart attack or stroke. 

You’ll receive a lump sum payment that you can use to cover things like out of pocket medical expenses and regular living costs. This means you can focus on getting well, without worrying about how you’re going to get by once you recover.

Trauma Insurance can be particularly helpful if you don’t have other forms of financial assets and protection such as Income Protection Insurance, Life Insurance, Private Health Insurance and Employee Benefits. You work out how much you’ll need, based on you and your family’s cost of living and any debts you have.

Trauma Insurance is sometimes also called Critical Illness Insurance.
