What is Life Insurance?  
  Life Insurance is a contract between an insurance policy holder and an insurer, where the insurer promises to pay a designated beneficiary a sum of money the ‘benefits’ upon the death of the insured person. Depending on the contract, other events such as terminal illness may also trigger payment. Other expenses such as funeral expenses, may also be included in the benefits.

The advantage for the policy owner is peace of mind in knowing that the death of the insured person will not result in financial hardship for loved ones and debtors. eg. Bond Cover. Outstanding debt will be paid off in the event of the death of the life assured.
