New Zealand Life Insurance

Why you need life insurance?

Life insurance, a common type of coverage in New Zealand, secures financial protection for families in the event of the policyholder’s death, be it due to accident, illness, or natural causes. The insured agrees with the insurer on a predetermined sum, such as $1 million, which is paid to designated beneficiaries, not for the insured’s own use but as a responsibility towards their loved ones and family. This ensures that even in absence, one can provide for their family’s future.


For more detailed insights on life insurance and its importance, consider consulting a financial advisor or exploring insurance providers’ resources in New Zealand.

Life is invaluable for a person or family.

Life doesn’t always go to plan. Life insurance could compensate the loss of a person’s death, from a financial perspective. 

A lump-sum claim will be paid out, if the insured person unfortunately pass away. This amount of payment can be used for any purpose, including but not limited to family mortgage, living expenses, children’s education.

Why we need life insurance:

  • Discussing life and death can be uncomfortable for many, especially within the Chinese community where cultural norms often lead to avoiding such topics. Yet, in New Zealand, addressing the inevitable becomes essential.

  • Life insurance isn't for the individual it insures but serves as a safeguard for the family's future. Imagine a scenario where the primary earner of a family unexpectedly passes away, leaving behind not just emotional turmoil but a financial void challenging to fill. Or consider someone responsible for significant loans; their untimely demise could transfer this financial burden onto family members. And what about children who are yet to stand on their own? Isn't it the responsibility of the parents to ensure they are protected financially?

  • These considerations underline the crucial role of life insurance in providing a financial safety net for families, ensuring that the well-being of loved ones is secured in the face of life's uncertainties.

  • Repayment of liabilities, such as mortgage, busisness loan

  • To cover family living espenses

  • To cover dependents' alimony and education cost

  • A compensation to your families and people you love

  • Even a part of legacy

  • In a conclusion, you should plan you life insurance based on your situations and needs.

Determining Life Insurance Coverage

1. Assess Financial Risks

When deciding on the amount of coverage, it’s essential to evaluate your potential financial risks. For instance, if someone has a mortgage of $800,000, the coverage should ideally encompass this debt. Similarly, estimating the annual household expenses and considering a coverage that secures 10-20 years of these expenses can be a wise approach. However, for a tailored advice that fits your unique situation, consulting with a regulated insurance advisor is recommended.

2. Consider Your Premium Budget


Certainly, not everyone selects their coverage solely based on financial risks, as the budget for premiums plays a critical role too. In reality, many people balance their risk and budget to decide on their plan. The expenditure on life insurance should also align with the family’s financial situation.

How to Choose a Life Insurance Premium Payment Plan?

1.Rate for each

Renewable premiums mean that the cost is recalculated annually based on the insured’s age and factors like inflation rates. This premium model tends to be more affordable in the early stages and while the insured is young. However, as one reaches middle age, the annual increase in premiums can become significantly steeper.

2. Level Premiums

If you’re planning on long-term coverage from the start, you might opt for a premium that doesn’t increase with age over a certain period, known as Level premiums. For instance, a Level 10 plan means the premium won’t rise for ten years; Level to age 80 implies premiums stay consistent until you turn 80. Initially, this model is pricier, but over the long run, it becomes considerably more cost-effective, especially after entering middle age.
