Personal Accident Insurance
Accidents and injuries happen. Personal accident and illness insurance makes your path to recovery easier by covering your bills and living expenses, allowing you to focus on getting better without worry.
What is Personal Accident Insurance?
Personal accident insurance (also called personal accident and illness cover) provides replacement income in the event you’re unable to work due to an accident or sudden illness. If your income requires you to work to pay your bills, then this type of cover can be the exact solution you need.
Personal accident insurance is especially beneficial for those with families and dependants who need to pay school fees, mortgage repayments, groceries and other living costs
If you’re a sole trader, a tradesman or contractor, personal accident and illness insurance protects your ability to pay your living expenses.

How can we help?
With access to a range of reputable insurers and policies not available to the public, we can offer you a range of quotes. We’ll help you compare the coverage offered for each, so you can make the best decision for your needs.
Having a customisable personal accident policy means that you can tailor coverage to suit the needs and risks of your finances and work life.
Personal accident insurance is complex and very individual to the policyholder, so it’s important to have an excellent adviser.
Simone is a truck driver who contracts to a large freight business. On the weekend and outside of work activities, Simone trips and fractures her right ankle leaving her unable to drive and earn an income.
Simone had taken out a personal accident insurance policy with her broker and explained she always has enough funds in savings to last for 2 weeks if she was injured. Her broker set up a policy which guarantees to pay her $1,000/week for up to 1 year while she can’t drive.
The policy will begin these payments to Simone after a 14 day waiting period – the period Simone selected when she bought the policy to keep the premium affordable for her budget.
