Some employers will offer their employees personal insurance cover. This can include life, TPD and also income protection (sometimes called salary continuance).
How Will Your Employer Provide Cover?
Employers may offer these types of insurance either through an employed sponsored super fund or just straight out of your pay. In most cases your employer will also cover the cost of the insurance premiums or pay an amount to help cover the cost. It is important to check with your employer if they offer cover and if so what type of cover they offer.
What to Do Next
If your employer does provide insurance the cover will often be of a basic nature and may not be totally suitable to your needs. Your financial planner can work out if there are any insurance gaps to fill in and make sure you’re sufficiently covered.
