Guardian Life Insurance

With up to $1.5 million cover available (depending on your age), you can be confident knowing your family can maintain their current lifestyle if you pass away or become terminally ill. 

You can apply for ongoing cover over the phone, just by answering a series of health and lifestyle questions – with no medical exams or blood tests required on application. For even more protection, optional cover is available for Serious Illness Insurance, Total & Permanent Disability Insurance and Children’s Insurance so you and your family are financially protected, even if your health changes.

Frequently asked questions

I’m healthy, why would I need life insurance now?

Life is unpredictable and we never know what lies around the corner. If you wait until you are unwell, the cost of getting life insurance could substantially increase, and it may also be difficult to obtain. Once Guardian Life Insurance is in place, you will have continuous cover for life as long as you pay your premiums on time (some optional covers may expire), regardless of changes to your health or pastimes.
