In Australia, life insurance comes in the form of term life. As the name suggests, this type of insurance is offered for a fixed term until the age of 75 with some insurers offering it until age 99. Insurers usually add policy extensions under life insurance. This includes total/permanent disability and trauma cover.
Premiums are paid annually or monthly depending on the terms chosen by the planholder. If you fail to pay your premiums on time, coverage ceases.
