Life Expectancy Tables

How long are you expected to live for? It’s a question we all ask ourselves – and while we know that an illness or an accident can happen at any time, life expectancy tables can be a good predictor of our life span.

What is a Life Expectancy Table

A life expectancy table is a table that collects information from death rates in the population, generally looking at age and gender. It is used to work out how likely someone is to pass away based on their age.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics is responsible for putting together the Life Expectancy Tables in Australia.

Free Child Cover

Many of the insurers we use offer free child cover of up to $10,000! You can also choose to pay for additional cover of up to $250,000.

It could be a great option for your family if you have young children.

Take out cover earlier

The earlier you take out life insurance, the cheaper it may be! Consider taking out cover in your 20’s or early 30’s to save thousands!

You may also want to consider taking out a level premium so your premiums do

Entry and Expiry ages

Different insurance products have different minimum and maximum entry ages:

Life Insurance: 18 – 79

Income Protection: 16 – 64

Trauma Insurance: 13 – 64

TPD: 15 – 64

Funeral Insurance: 17 – 80

Most of the life insurance policies we compare expire at age 99 or 100 – allowing you to maintain cover late into life.
