Life insurance FAQs

Life can throw some tricky situations at you so we've got answers to common questions right here for you.

Will my life insurance premiums increase?

Your life insurance premium is calculated on a stepped basis which means it will generally increase each year as you age. All premium changes will occur from the next anniversary date on your policy and we will inform you in advance of your policy anniversary of the premium we will charge you for the following year.

In addition, you will be offered an automatic indexation on your policy at each policy anniversary, which means that your benefit amount and premium will both increase by 5%. You can opt-out of these automatic increases by contacting us.

Medibank may, from time to time, review its premium rate schedule, which may result in changes to the premiums charged for all policies. Changes of this nature will be notified to you in advance of the change affecting you and you can never be singled out for an increase.
