Australia’s largest Life Insurers offer peace of mind around Covid-19 vaccinations

A common question we are receiving is ‘are we covered if we suffer a side-effect from the Covid-19 vaccine?’

Seven of Australia’s largest life insurers are joining forces in support of Australia’s Covid-19 vaccine program. The insurers involved are:

  • AIA Australia
  • ClearView
  • MetLife
  • MLC Life Insurance
  • Resolution Life (acquired AMP Life in July 2020)
  • TAL
  • Zurich

The insurers have come together through a campaign called ‘we have you covered’ to provide confidence to customers around receiving an approved Covid-19 vaccination.

The three key areas addressed in the campaign are:

  • Receiving a vaccination against COVID-19 will not affect any claim you make on an existing life insurance policy now or in the future.
  • Receiving a vaccination against COVID-19 will not affect any application you make to take out life insurance in the future.
  • While serious side effects are rare, any that arise as a result of receiving an approved COVID-19 vaccine will be covered by your life insurance policy where they meet the terms and benefits of your policy.
