NobleOak wins Outstanding Value Award for Direct Life Insurance in 2018

In Canstar’s 2018 Direct Life Insurance Star Ratings, we researched and rated 27 direct life insurance products from 27 insurers to determine which providers offer Outstanding Value. We are pleased to congratulate NobleOak, one of our three winners of an Outstanding Value Direct Life Insurance Award in 2018.

Why NobleOak is a winner

NobleOak has received this award for a third consecutive year for its Premium Life Direct product. This product received 5-Stars in all profiles considered and Canstar Research found the primary driver of this strong performance was low premiums, which reduced by 5% for all insurable amounts compared to last year.

NobleOak offers a number of features such as guaranteed future insurability, so a person can increase the sum insured when their circumstances change, e.g. when they marry or start a family. In addition, suicide is only excluded in the first 13 months of the policy, and other typical general exclusions do not apply, such as death as a result of being under the influence of drugs/alcohol, working at heights or underground, or participating in dangerous pursuits such as motorsports, mountaineering or hang-gliding.

Other standout features include optional additional coverage including total permanent disability (TPD) cover of up to $5 million and trauma cover of up to $2 million. This can be added without the requirement for the consumer to obtain advice.

NobleOak FAQs

Generally speaking, premiums for forms of life insurance such as term life insurance, TPD insurance or trauma insurance may not be tax deductible, according to ATO (Australian Taxation Office). Ask your tax accountant or financial adviser for more details on this.

The ATO however, states that you can claim the cost of premiums you pay that cover the loss of your income, such as income protection insurance. You can’t, however, claim a deduction for premiums that compensate you for physical injury or are taken out through your super fund. Ask your tax accountant or financial adviser for more details on this.

NobleOak life insurance policies are renewed annually, with stepped premiums that increase as you age and as your level of cover increases with indexation, to keep up with inflation.

An optional premium freeze is also offered, meaning your premiums can be “frozen” upon request, so they do not increase each year (level premiums). There are pros and cons to this however, and it’s important to understand that when a premium freeze is applied, your sum insured decreases each year as you get older.

For more information about stepped premiums versus level premiums, read this article.

You should be able to change your level of cover by adding or removing optional features like TPD cover, and by increasing or decreasing your sum insured for each type of cover included in your life insurance policy. Keep in mind that increasing your level of cover and or adding your spouse or children to your policy is likely to mean you pay a higher insurance premium.
