Indexation for Professionals
Being exclusively for professionals we are able to offer the option of having benefits increase in line with your salary, based on increases in our Professional Earnings Index or inflation, whichever is greater.
You can also increase your cover without having to provide further medical evidence when certain career events occur – such as becoming a partner or starting in private practice.
Agreed Value Premium Saver
Allows you to have the security of an agreed value definition, without paying the full loading generally applied to all agreed value policies.
Realising that no one solution exists for everybody, we have built many flexibility features into the Professionals Choice product range, such as:
Flexible Premium Structure
A flexible premium structure provides for both a stepped and level premium structure for the one insurance type, allowing you to tailor your cover to benefit from the advantages of both premium structures.
True Level Premium
Premiums for any increased cover, from the application of the Indexation for Professionals Benefit, is based on your age at the date of the commencement of your cover and not your age at the time the indexation is applied.
Change of Ownership
The plan ownership may be transferred at any time with no underwriting.
Cover through Superannuation
