With the world of vaccines, there is a lot of misinformation floating around. One such subject is if life insurers pay a benefit if you have had a coronavirus or Covid-19 vaccine.
This week, multiple life insurers have confirmed they will in fact pay a benefit if you have chosen to take the vaccine, regardless of the brand, as long as it is a government approved method.
One such insurer, MLC, has stated:
“To be clear – the COVID-19 vaccine is not experimental treatment. Receiving approved treatment from a qualified medical professional at an approved medical facility is not a self-inflicted injury,” the industry body’s chief executive, Sally Loane said earlier this month.
“One of the main reasons why people hold life insurance policies is to provide peace of mind for themselves and their families. The FSC would like to reassure Australians that when they get vaccinated, their life insurance will be there for them, completely unaffected.”
So, rest assured that having, or choosing not to have, the Covid-19 jab will NOT affect your life insurance policy claims.
