Speaker: Drew Browne, Specialist Financial Adviser @unusualrisks

Transcript: There are four possible outcomes for any life insurance policy.

Number one - it can be accepted at Standard Rates - now this means that the price that was quoted in the premium is the price you'll pay, the standard price.

The second outcome is where premiums are Loaded with a medical rating that might be because of a medical situation or an occupational situation where the risks have to be managed.

The third outcome is that a policy can be Delayed from finishing, because we haven't yet received the medical reports or the assessments that we require to be completed.

And of course a policy can also be Declined. A Decline can be because a medical situation is beyond what's possible to manage or an occupational category is beyond what's covered by that insurer.

Ether way, that's why you use a professional insurance advisor to help you navigate successfully through these four possible outcomes for your policy.

Whatever your situation, we can help you

  • Single

    Age is no indicator of relationship status or financial responsibility.

    • You can be young and starting out or older and established; and both enjoying living the single life.
    • You might be single, single again, sometimes single, single with kids, single with pets or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to being single in the LGBTQI+ community, there's really no such thing as average.

    And it's your single life, so live it your way.

  • Partnered

    Sharing life and love with someone can be twice as exciting.

    • You might be partnered, partnered with pets, officially de facto, officially married (yay!), splitting expenses but sharing life, or joining incomes and combining financial lives too.
    • You might be together but living apart, working towards a future with kids, thinking about fostering, adopting, IVF or surrogacy; or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to being partnered in the LGBTQI+ community, there's really no such thing as average.

    There's no right or wrong way to live a purposeful life, just what works for you both.

  • Parenting

    For today's LGBTQI+ families, there are no accidental families.

    • You might be parenting and single with kids, parenting solo with kids, parenting and partnered with kids, (yours, theirs and ours), dual parents with kids, co-parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, or even adoptive parents of kids with additional needs (just beautiful!).
    • You might be a lesbian co-parenting couple or super involved 'Guncles' or Aunties. You might not even identify with the broader LGBTQI+ community but find yourself a parent in a same-sex relationship, or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to parenting in the LGBTQI+ community, there's really no such thing as average.

    However you're doing it, Love makes a family.
