Emma's Story

Posted by Naomi Rosenthal on Sunday, October 25, 2015, In : Life Insurance 
Australia’s underinsurance problem is well documented and widely discussed.

But only when we put a human face to this phenomenon does all the talk start to become meaningful.

This video tells the story of Emma Bright, who just a short time ago, had the world at her feet, before tragically losing her husband in a motorcycle accident, and being left to raise their young son alone. 

Although Emma and her husband had some life cover in place it wasn't enough.

With the right insurance in place, Emma...

Why DisabilityCare is no replacement for life insurance

Posted by Naomi Rosenthal on Monday, July 21, 2014, In : Life Insurance 
When the concept of the DisabilityCare scheme (formerly known as the NDIS) was first announced by the Government, concerns were raised about the impact that it may have on people’s attitude toward life insurance.
It is clear that there is confusion about the scheme – what it is and what it is not.
[Click here] to find out what it covers and why life insurance is still important.

Direct Insurance

Posted by Naomi Rosenthal on Thursday, May 22, 2014, In : Life Insurance 

Why it pays to NOT go direct for your insurance


[I have used the terms adviser, agent and broker synonymously]

All the insurance ads you see on TV are either for general insurance (I can't seem to get that NRMA tune out of my head!) or for direct life insurance (e.g. insurance line, real insurance).

Insurance products that you can only get via a qualified life insurance adviser are not advertised. I don't know why, perhaps we do such a great job for the insurance companies they don't need to ad...

Your second family from your third marriage. And the list can go on. The inter-connectedness of you and others and the dynamic nature of your financial affairs is a tree with many branches.
As a younger parent, you’re likely concerned about your children’s welfare and what would happen if you were no longer around or too sick ...

How your Income Protection Waiting Period works (in general).

Posted by Naomi Rosenthal on Wednesday, December 1, 2010, In : Life Insurance 

The 'waiting period' is the time between you becoming unable to work and receiving your first income protection payment. You can generally choose a waiting period between fourteen days and two years. A shorter waiting period usually means a higher premium.

Because most disability events are temporary, insurance coverage for them is cheaper when the policyholder agrees to wait longer before receiving claim payments. For example, if you break a finger, it may only be 2 months before you are ab...

Time to quit.

Posted by Naomi Rosenthal on Wednesday, December 1, 2010, In : Life Insurance 

On 10th October 2006 I stopped smoking.

I owe my success of having successfully stopped and feeling like I'll never need to smoke again, to a number of things:

  • Allan Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking
  • A positive mental attitude
  • A new non-smoking man in my life, which led me to the belief that the relationship wouldn't work at all if I continued to smoke. (We're still together!)
  • Feeling that if I didn't stop soon my health would continue to deteriorate.
