    About Insurance Brokers

    Updated: 1 year ago

    Insurance brokers operate on behalf of their customers. Insurance brokers understand both the potential risks that an individual or business may face and also the various insurance policy options and insurance providers that exist across the market.

Insurance Brokers work for their customers and have their customers' best interests at heart. Insurance Brokers do not work for the insurer.

    Trauma Insurance

    Updated: 1 year ago

    Trauma Insurance provides cover for when you are impacted by a serious illness or injury which usually require extensive medical treatment and may prevent you from working. Illnesses and injuries included in "Trauma" vary from insurer to insurer.

    Trauma Insurance is paid out as a lump sum and is designed to provide financial support to help you manage your costs of living and treatment while you are recovering. You may choose to use this financial support for medical and rehabilitation treatment, paying of debts, general living expenses, home modifications or even saving for the future.

    Updated: 1 year ago

    Trauma insurance generally covers major and debilitating illness or injury that requires extensive treatment to recover. Some examples of illness or injury that are covered by Trauma Insurance include:

    • head injury
    • organ transplant
    • some types of cancer
    • blindness
    • burns
    • heart conditions
    • stroke

    Different policies will cover different illnesses or injuries, and for any illness or injury you will need to pass the severity criteria specified by your policy to be eligible for payment. Mental Illness is generally not covered by Trauma Insurance. 

    You should be careful to ensure you have set your level of cover high enough to cover your ongoing expenses should you become critically ill. Types of insurance that you may also consider alongside Trauma Insurance include Workers Compensation, Key Man, Key Person, Life, TPD and Income Protection.

    Trauma Insurance and Total and Permanent Disability Insurance, or TPD, can be easily confused but they are different types of insurance covering you for different events.

    The key is the word "permanent" in TPD. TPD insurance covers you for a situation where you are impacted by an illness or injury that is permanent, you won't recover. This will have an ongoing impact on your ability to work or even look after yourself physically. In this case, TPD insurance may be applicable to your situation.

    Trauma Insurance, on the other hand, is generally applicable to a situation where you will be able to make a significant recovery following an illness or injury. Trauma insurance is designed to help with the financial burden of this recovery and make the path back to work easier.
