Insurance in Australia

Insurance

Australia has a very well established and reliable insurance system. Insurance for individuals and families can be divided into three categories - general insurance, life insurance, and private health insurance. 

Many Australians also take out income protection to secure part of their salary if they become unable to work. You can obtain insurance through a bank or specialist insurance companies.  There can be advantages in keeping your banking and insurances together such as multi-policy  discounts but you should shop around to ensure you are getting the best insurance for your circumstances.
