A range of support services

A simple claims process that pays out as soon as possible is crucial. But years of experience has taught us that it’s only part of the story.

AMP Life is also here to help you and your family get back to everyday life wherever possible. This could mean providing rehabilitation after an illness or accident or working closely with your employer to organise a return-to-work program.

In some cases, we may even be able to arrange food delivery or transport to help you take care of yourself after an illness.

We're here for our customers

AMP Life has a unique model compared to other Australian life insurers. We focus only on supporting and managing our existing customers. This means we don’t spend our time, money and energy trying to get new customers. Instead, we can dedicate all our resources to taking care of you.

The value of cover

We offer a wide range of insurance covers that help protect you and your family against financial insecurity in the event of an illness, injury or death. This includes:

  • Death and terminal illness cover
  • Income protection
  • Total and Permanent Disablement cover
  • Trauma cover

Each of our insurance products offers features to make your cover valuable and flexible. For example, you can choose to apply indexation to your cover, so your benefit amount increases in line with the cost of living each year. You can find out more about product features in the Product Disclosure Statement for your insurance cover.

While life insurance may seem like an unnecessary expense at times, it may help you and your family if you become sick, injured or pass away. At time of claim, the value of your insurance cover will become priceless. The following example gives you an idea of the difference life cover could make during a very difficult time.

Example

Rick and Alison have two children under 10. Rick is a sales manager for an IT company while Alison works part-time as an accountant. The young family are paying off a mortgage and saving for their children’s high-school education.

Eighteen months ago, Rick was involved in a bad car accident on his way to work. Fortunately, he survived – but was seriously injured. He spent nearly a month in intensive care. In the months that followed, he also went through a rehabilitation program to learn to walk again.

Fortunately, Rick was able to claim on the Income Protection insurance he’d taken out with AMP Life. His cover provided him with monthly payments of 75% of his income, which the family used to pay their expenses.

Knowing he had a regular income helped Rick focus on getting well without the stress of financial insecurity. It also meant the family didn’t need to dip into their children’s education savings. Alison could afford to take some time off work to visit Rick in hospital, and be there to help him when he came back home.

Through AMP Life, Rick also received additional support to help him get the rehabilitation services he needed. This included an assessment of his rehabilitation needs and recommending equipment and modifications to his workplace that would make it possible to continue his job once he was ready to return to work.
