Picture this. You’re out with your mates, enjoying the sunshine when suddenly something in your body starts to feel off. You’re not sure what it is but you know that it’s spreading. An awful tingling is racing through your body, and with it a sense of dread.

Next thing you know, you’re waking up in emergency services without any idea of how you got there. In a moment a doctor is explaining to you that you have just suffered a thoracic aortic aneurysm. You’re at a loss for words. You just feel lucky to be alive.

That’s what happened to David*. Luckily for him, he was protected by a life insurance policy that included trauma cover.

Trauma cover is designed to protect you when serious illness strikes. For David this meant that, despite being unable to work, he had plenty of cash to pay for his treatment. He even had enough left over that he and his partner could take the holiday of their dreams after his recovery.

With 1 in 2 Australians diagnosed with cancer by age 85, 57,000 heart attacks each year and almost as many strokes, the prevalence of serious illnesses means they touch nearly all of our lives**.

Trauma cover helps you to prepare against these and many more life-altering, but common conditions, giving you and your family some much needed security when it’s needed most. You can insure yourself with a lump sum payment that is paid if you are diagnosed with a covered condition.

For example, you may choose to be covered for $500,000. If you were diagnosed with a cancer that is covered under the policy, your insurer would pay you the $500,000 once they had approved your claim. This money is yours to spend however you choose.

With trauma, you’ll find cover against certain cancers, heart and brain conditions, (including dementia, stroke and multiple sclerosis) and severe accidents resulting in permanent impairment.

This cover is readily available with every insurer from our panel of 9 industry leaders, and it’s far more affordable than you might imagine.

Best of all, the team at Life Insurance Comparison will compare prices across our panel of insurers to get you the cover you want, at the best price, all in the space of a single consultation.

Life will always catch you off guard, but you can be prepared. Australians insure our homes and our cars without a second thought, so why not insure yourself against the most common severe illnesses?
