What else do I need to know?

Am I eligible for client benefits?

Eligible policies for client benefits are: Assurance Extra, Business Assurance, Business Extra, Agribusiness Extra, Life Cover Plus, Mortgage Extra, Rural Extra, Children’s Extra and Grandchildren’s Extra.

The benefits are only available to the policy owner, life assured and dependent children. A dependent child is aged 16 and under (or up to 21 years old if in full time education and financially dependent on the policy owner or life assured).

The benefit must be received and claimed within 13 months of the life event occurring.

A referral from a medical practitioner is required to be eligible for the fitness and nutrition benefits.

Can I be covered if I smoke?

Yes.

Can I reduce or increase the cover after my application has been submitted?

Yes. You can reduce or increase your requested insurance cover at any time during the assessment process. If you wish to increase cover, be aware that the process could take longer as additional information may be required.

Is there any policy criteria for client benefits?

You must have an in-force Cigna insurance policy to receive a client benefit. Your Cigna policy must have been in force for a minimum of 90 days and your policy must not be in arrears.

Will my life insurance premiums increase as I age?

It’s very common for insurers to increase your Life Insurance Premiums as you age. At Cigna, your premiums will be adjusted on each anniversary date of having your policy, these changes will reflect your current age and cover amounts. You will always be advised in writing prior to any changes being made to your premium.

Will I need to have a medical examination?

You will not necessarily require a medical examination in order to obtain a Cigna Insurance Policy. Medical examinations are only required for two reasons. First, if you have requested a large amount of cover. Second, if you have a medical condition that requires a doctor's input to make a fair assessment.

In some cases where you report a medical condition, we may send a form to your doctor to complete, rather than require you to visit your doctor for an examination.

Can I apply for a new policy?

We’re continuing to accept applications for policies, but in light of the medical and financial impacts that COVID-19 is likely to have, we’ve made some changes to how we assess applications for underwritten products, such as Life Cover or Income Protection.

There may be heightened risk for applicants with certain occupations, employment status and underlying medical conditions. So we need to take these risks into account before we issue new policies.
