    Some life insurance companies offer universal life insurance to Australian residents with no medical. But if you want life insurance coverage of $5m or more, you will need a medical. Capital for Life Australia has an approved list of medical clinics in Sydney and Melbourne that clients can attend.

  • Can I borrow against life insurance policy if I am Australian resident?

    You can borrow against the cash value of your IUL policy if you are an Australian resident. Our analysis has shown that loans secured against your life policy typically have lower interest rates because you are using the life insurance policy as collateral. You can either take the policy to a bank to borrow money and pledge it as collateral, or take a loan directly from the insurance company itself.

    In our experience, popular reasons why Australian's borrow against a life insurance policy are:

    • Buy property in Australia or overseas as a but to let rentail investment.
    • Invest in Australian equities and bonds with the expectation of a higher return.
    • Provide short term liquidity for an Australian business venture.
  • Can Australian residents get premium financing for a universal life insurance policy?

    Yes, it is possible for Australian residents to obtain financing for their universal life insurance policy. This premium financing can be for up to 100% of the policy's cash surrender value and is subject to underwriting. However, it's important to note that this financing strategy may not be suitable for all types of Australian financial planning and it's recommended to consult with a tax adviser before proceeding. Capital for Life can make a suitable introduction upon request.

  • What is life expectancy in Australia?

    According to data published by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2020, the average life expectancy in Australia is 83 years. Male life expectancy in Australia is 81.3 years, while female life expectancy is 84.8 years. Australia ranks 7th in the world for life expectancy. These statistics are based on the latest available data and are subject to change over time.

    Life expectancy for Australia is an important factor for life insurance companies when determining the premium rates for their policies issued to Australian residents. A person's life expectancy plays a role in calculating the risk level associated with insuring them, as the longer a person is expected to live, the more likely they are to make a claim on their policy. As a result, life insurance premiums are typically lower for individuals with a higher life expectancy and higher for those with a shorter life expectancy. By understanding the average life expectancy in Australia, life insurance companies can better evaluate the risk associated with offering coverage to residents of Australia and adjust their premiums accordingly. Australia is classed as an 'A' risk rated country by many international life insurers meaning it is deemed a high life expectancy country.
