Life Insurance Policies Inside vs Outside of Superannuation

Not all life insurance policies are created equal. When we say life insurance policies in this episode, we’re also referring to permanent disability and income protection. In Australia as of now, we’re already facing an immense underinsurance problem, which can leave people wondering how they will pay for bills and living expenses if something were to happen to their health.


It can be tempting to rely on your superannuation fund to fund the cost of your life insurance products given the fact that this won’t impact your cash flow. However, we really need to reassess if this is the appropriate strategy and products for you, or if you’re better off holding these policies outside of superannuation. 


Join us in this episode as we dive right into the things that you should consider when deciding on holding a life insurance policy inside or outside of superannuation.
