We’re giving the next generation of business leaders and industry experts a helping hand by making the process of applying for insurance even easier.

When your customers are starting out in their professional career, their income does not necessarily reflect their earning potential or how their day-to-day life could be impacted if the unexpected was to happen.

Now with our ‘new professionals’ option, your eligible newly-qualified customers can access lump sum Life, Trauma, Complete Disablement Cover and Agreed Value Income Protection Cover up to a maximum level, without the need for the usual supporting financials.

Who’s eligible for this option?

This option is available to recent graduates or newly-qualified professionals in eligible occupations such as doctors, vets or solicitors.

To be eligible the customer must:

  • Have an appropriate degree and/or higher qualification, and have graduated and/or become registered/admitted into their current profession within the last 3 years; AND

  • Be fully accredited and registered by the appropriate New Zealand professional body/ies where required, AND

  • Be working a minimum of 30 hours per week and producing an income in one of the listed eligible professional occupations.

How does the application process work?

The option is available on Assurance Extra policies purchased through an Adviser.

When you enter your customer’s occupation and employment details in the Cigna eApp, you’ll automatically be prompted with tailored questions regarding the ‘new professionals’ option.

Is there anything else I need to know?

For full details you can download a copy of the fact sheet to share with your customers.
