Life insurance will most likely be more expensive and harder to get if you wait until you’re older and when your health starts to deteriorate. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, so it pays to have peace of mind knowing your family will be financially secure should the unexpected happen.
If you’re an Australian resident aged between 18 and 64, you’re eligible to apply for Life Cover. All you need to do is answer some simple lifestyle questions over the phone – there’s no medical or blood tests needed.
The minimum benefit amount is $100,000 and the maximum benefit amount is $1 million depending on your age. You can choose a benefit amount that suits your family’s lifestyle needs and your budget.
You’re covered for death and terminal illness from any cause except suicide or intentional self-injury in the first 13 months of cover starting, increasing or being reinstated. If there are any other exclusions relating to your answers to health and lifestyle questions, you’ll be informed of these when applying.
Peace of mind is affordable! Request a quote or call us on 1300 025 433 to find out more.

You’re covered no matter where in the world you are if you’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident living in Australia at the time you apply (subject to underwriting).
Could your family cope financially if you unexpectedly pass away? Life insurance pays a benefit to your family so they can continue to live the same lifestyle you’ve worked hard to build. The payout can be used to pay your mortgage or rent, loans, school fees, bills, and everyday expenses. Even if you already have life insurance in your superannuation, Life Cover can help by topping up your cover, so that your family won’t need to worry about not having enough money to get by.
You can renew your life insurance cover for life if you pay your premiums on time.
Life insurance premiums are generally not tax deductible, and you or your beneficiary won’t have to pay tax on the benefit you receive. This may not apply to your individual circumstances though or may change over time, so we recommend to always seek professional tax advice.
Life insurance payments go to the Policyowner, but if the Policyowner is also the Life Insured, the benefit will be paid to a person they nominate or, if no nomination is made, to their legal representative or a person we can pay under the Life Insurance Act 1995. You can submit details on who you want to receive the benefit by filling in the Nomination of Beneficiaries Form and mailing it to:
Kogan Life Insurance
PO Box 6728
Baulkham Hills NSW 2153
To ensure your level of life insurance cover keeps up with increases in the cost of living, we’ll automatically increase your cover by 5% each year on your policy anniversary. You’ll be notified in writing about this increase, which you can choose to decline. These automatic increases will stop once you reach 75 years of age.
If you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness and have 12 months or less to live, the terminal illness cover means you can claim your full life insurance benefit in advance to get medical treatment or put your affairs in order.
Get greater protection with optional cover including Children’s Insurance, Total & Permanent Disability Insurance, Accidental Death Insurance, and Serious Illness Insurance.
You’ll get a full refund on any premiums paid if you cancel your cover in the first 30 days of it starting without having made a claim.
If you cancel your cover after the 30 day cooling off period, you won’t get any premiums you’ve paid back. However, if you’ve chosen a yearly payment, you’ll get a refund of the unused portion of your premium.
Your insurance premium will be calculated each year on the policy anniversary based on your age at that time. Any variation will apply to all Life Cover Policyowners – you’ll never be singled out for an increase.
