What types of cover does Integrity offer?

Nobody likes thinking about falling ill, having an accident or worse, but it’s important to be prepared if something were to happen to you. It’s all about providing a secure financial future for anyone who depends on you.

If you’ve got no dependents but not much in the way of savings, you may simply want income protection to cover your bills & day-to-day expenses. Have a history of illness in your family? You may want to consider trauma (critical illness) cover. And if you have a growing family or big financial commitments like a mortgage, you might prefer the reassurance of life cover.

Integrity offers four flexible products, some of which you can pay for through your super

Life cover

Integrity Life gives your beneficiaries a one-off payment that can be used to pay off debts, cover everyday expenses and help provide long-term financial security.  

Key features:

  • A lump sum payment if you die or are diagnosed with a terminal illness

  • Access to the Integrity Care Support Package that includes Accommodation, Grief Support, Occupationally Acquired Needlestick benefits and more^

Total permanent disability (TPD)

If you suffer a serious injury or illness, you may not be able to work. TPD insurance gives you a lump sum payment to help you manage your finances. Our TPD guide has more information on how this type of cover works.

  • Lump sum payment if you suffer a total and permanent disability

  • A partial payment of up to 25% if you lose the use of one arm or, or sight in one eye

Your ability to earn an income is important, so it makes sense to protect it. Covering you with up to 70% of your income each month, Integrity Income Protection takes the pressure off so you can focus on getting better.

Key features:

  • Monthly payments to replace part of your income if you’re unable to work because of sickness or injury
