A Westpac Flexi Loan is a great lifestyle convenience
But if you become sick or injured and can’t work, or suddenly lose your job, that debt could quickly get out of control.
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.
Flexi Loan Repayment Protection is easy to arrange
- Simply add the insurance when applying for a Westpac Flexi Loan
- No medical examination required to apply1.
1. Please note: An exclusion applies for sickness, injury or disease occurring within 180 days of the commencement date for which you sought or obtained medical advice or treatment during 180 days prior to the commencement date.
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.
