Flexi Loan repayment protection is no longer sold. The information on this product is for existing Flexi Loan repayment protection policy holders. 

Having Flexi Loan Repayment Protection to help cover your repayments means you’ll have one less thing to worry about:

  • Get up to 3% of your balance owing paid each month, if you unexpectedly lose your job, for up to 180 days or until you return to work, whichever happens first
  • Get up to 3% of your balance owing paid each month, while you’re sick or injured and can’t work
  • Have the balance owing paid off up to $75,000 if you pass away (so loved ones aren’t left with this debt)
  • You can claim even if entitled to benefits from another source, such as workers compensation, sick leave or Centrelink
  • You don’t pay more because of age, job, or health record.

Of course, like all insurance, some exclusions, limits and conditions apply. For example, if you voluntarily resign or accept a voluntary redundancy you aren’t covered for job loss. Also, if you were not working at least 15 hours or more per week when you became unfit for work, you  will  not be covered. 


The lower your balance, the less it costs

Flexi Loan Repayment Protection costs 30 cents for every $100 owing on your monthly balance, and is:

  • Calculated on the balance owing at the end of each statement cycle when your monthly statement is produced
  • Automatically added to your Flexi Loan balance each month.
