Thanks to Asteron Life’s Healthy Life Option and Healthy Plus Option, advisers can now pass on savings to clients, giving them access to comprehensive cover at a reduced premium.
Based on their age, BMI and a non-smoking status of five years or more, clients can be eligible for up to 25 per cent savings* on life cover, up to 15 per cent savings^ on total and permanent disability cover and up to five per cent discount# on trauma cover.
David Noble, Asteron Life’s Executive Manager—Product Management Life said, “As an adviser, you’re naturally looking out for what’s best for your clients—and it’s a feeling we share. That’s why we offer multiple opportunities for your clients to save on their insurance premiums.”
In addition to these savings, the application process has also been streamlined with fewer questions and automated online systems, making it easier for advisers to apply the healthy lifestyle discounts and see exactly what each benefit entails.
