Pay Your Premiums With Super

Many of the insurance companies we feature will allow your Life/TPD insurance and Income Protection insurance premiums to be paid out of your existing superannuation fund or SMSF. Some insurers will even give you a 15% discount if you pay in this way. Interested? Compare life insurance quotes or seek advice from one of our qualified advisers.

Tax Deductions

Tax deductions can be handy at tax time. Did you know that income protection insurance premiums can be fully tax deductible? This means when considering the cost of income protection you should look at the after tax cost. We show you the savings you can make by claiming your tax deduction. Compare income protection quotes and find a great deal.
