In certain cases insurance companies will apply a loading or exclusion (also known as revised terms) to a policy. This decision can be the result of a number of factors, including your medical history, if you have a dangerous job, plan to travel to a high-risk destination or participate in a hazardous pastime.
Insurance companies review the information provided in each application using a set of guidelines, called underwriting guidelines. This process determines whether a loading or exclusion will be applied.
If the insurance company applies a loading or exclusion, it is applied to the standard policy, which is outlined by the insurance company in the Product Disclosure Statement or PDS.
In some instances, an application for insurance will be declined if the nature of the risk falls outside of the underwriting guidelines.
When applying for Life Insurance, it is important to disclose any information that might be relevant, so we can work with you to find appropriate cover.
