Small Business Insurance

Big business protection for your small business

Protect your team

As a small business owner, you handpick a team of people who share your vision and work hard to make it happen. It's only natural that you want to protect and support those people who’ve helped you make your business what it is today.

In the past, small employers were often unable to access group insurance, making it harder and more expensive to provide this benefit for their employees. But now if you have more than 12-50 employees, MetLife can offer you cover that’s customised to suit your staff and your business. 

While Life and Total Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance are often available to individuals through their super fund, you can provide extra security for your employees through income protection insurance, which offers a regular payment to your employees if they are unable to work due to illness or injury.

Group insurance means your staff may be automatically accepted for cover.

And because it’s for groups, group insurance is often cheaper than they could otherwise get as an individual.
