For full details of the exclusions relating to this policy, please refer to the benefit sections of the policy wording.
It is not mandatory to have this insurance so if your circumstances have changed or if you think this insurance may no longer be suitable for you, it is important to let us know. We can help you review your current insurance needs and ensure you have the insurance solution that’s right for you.
The cost of the insurance is based on the outstanding balance of your loan. The monthly premium rate is 35 cents (fortnightly is 16.15 cents) per $100 (pro-rated) of the outstanding loan balance.
For example, if your outstanding loan balance was $3,000 the insurance premium for that month would be $10.50 ($3,000/100 x $0.35).
The premium will be waived during the time you are receiving a benefit payment under the Temporary Disablement or Redundancy benefits.
Unless your policy is cancelled earlier by you, your policy will end when your loan is repaid, you stop paying the premiums, you reach age 77, we make a lump sum payment under the terms of the policy (excluding those made on the Death or Terminal Illness of a Spouse or Child benefit) or if all ASB Personal Loan Insurance policies are cancelled under the terms of the policy.
This policy may not be suitable for you if:
Please note, it is important that you are satisfied that you can afford this premium in addition to your ongoing personal loan repayment.
You can cancel this policy at any time by visiting any ASB Branch and completing a Cancellation Advice Form or providing a written request that is dated and signed.
