Insurance: Why do I need it?

As you get older, you start to accumulate stuff – good stuff, like cars, entertainment units, houses etc. – and less-good stuff, like extra financial obligations and increased costs of living.

You become more and more reliant on your ability to work and earn a consistent income to meet your financial commitments.

Getting appropriate insurance cover is like your financial back up plan for when you are unable to work due to illness, injury or death. There are certain times in everyone’s life when insurance becomes important, like when:

Young family reading insurance contract, their agent advising
  • You get married or divorced
  • Buy a home or investment property
  • Your debt levels increase
  • You start a career as a tradesperson
  • Change jobs or your salary increases
  • You start a business – or sell one

A great benefit of setting up your insurance while you’re young, and before anything unfortunate happens to you, is being able to secure potentially lower premiums than those who are older and you may have more inclusions that you’re covered for. It can be too late to get insured once an illness or injury occurs so it’s best to ensure your future financial security with the right insurance.

Income Insurance (aka. Income Protection)

If you had a car accident or got really sick and you were off work for an extended time, how long could you keep paying the bills? What would you live on?

You might have some holiday leave saved up, and maybe some sick leave, but your employer isn’t going to keep paying you past that point.

Income protection insurance is one of the most important types of insurance cover for any working person. It can replace up to 75% of your income over a specified time if you can’t work because of sickness or injury. The payments you make for income protection insurance are often tax-deductible.

Life Insurance

It’s not nice to think about, but imagine what would happen if you passed away? Would you leave a financial mess behind for your friends and family to deal with?

Life insurance gives your family an income and allows them to pay off debts in the event of your death, which helps during the grieving period.

For people with young children, extra money is often needed for after-school care and for domestic help.

The team at Ethica Private Wealth Specialists would love to help with your insurance options and invite you to a free consultation to discuss your goals further.

Total and Permanent Disability Insurance (TPD)

If you had a major accident or a serious illness and the doctors told you that you’d never work again. What would you do? How would you afford to live? How could you handle the medical bills?

Total and Permanent Disability Insurance covers you if you suffer an accident or certain type of illness that means you won’t be able to work in the same capacity you’ve done in the past. You receive a lump-sum payment that will help you readjust your life, reorganise your priorities and look after yourself.

Trauma Insurance

These days, it’s amazing the kind of things you can recover from with the right medical care.  But what happens after you survive? Let’s say you had a heart attack or suffered a serious accident when you were driving or skiing or playing sport – how would you cope with the fallout from that trauma?

This type of insurance protects you and your family members financially in the event of disability or a serious illness, so your parents, wife or friends don’t get stuck with the cost of looking after you until you get back on your feet.


Business Insurance

Whether you’re a tradesman or a dentist, this is vital for anyone operating a business, or in a business partnership. Business insurance incorporates life, trauma and income protection insurance in one policy.

Who is going to do the work if you’re not there?

Business Insurance protects your business, your personal assets and income from being eroded when the main income earner is injured or suffering from an illness.

How Ethica Can Help YouBetter Financial Planning is in Our DNA

Credit Card Danger

They open the door to opportunities but, if they aren’t effectively managed, the fees can get out of control and leave you stressed and on the back-foot with your financial plan.

Budget and Saving Plans

Identify where you’re over spending or where you can access extra funds to reach your financial goals like travelling or buying a car.

Insurance: do you need it?

As you accumulate possessions and assets, and your financial obligations and living costs increase, you become very reliant on your ability to work… but what happens if you can’t work?

Lending: What to do when you need to borrow

Between the ages of 18 and 35 is, for many Australians, the time when they need to borrow money for significant projects i.e. building or buying their first home, leasing a vehicle, or financing a start-up business.

Wealth Creation: It starts now

As any person with wealth will tell you, the earlier you start the better. You have the advantage of youth, meaning you can get compound interest working to increase your wealth while you get on with your life.

Superannuation: It’s not just for old people…

Retirement may seem a long way off, but there are few better investments than putting money into your super.

It’s a great way of building your wealth while keeping your tax to a minimum.
