Some things in life affect us all equally—regardless of who we are

These things aren't personal - actually, they're just statistical.

These numbers and what they warn us about are the same for everyone without discrimination.

In the perfect world, everyone will have enough money to be able to purchase the right amount of personal insurance they need to make sure every part of their life is protected from the statistical realities we all face - we call these statistical risks The Numbers of Life.

By we don't live in the perfect world so most of us have to carefully choose where our greatest risks are and use a strategy to cover what's most important to us and what's our greatest risk.

  • 1 in 4 chance of needing to claim on your Income Protection insurance
  • 1 in 10 chance of needing to claim on your Life insurance
  • 1 in 20 chance of needing to claim on your Total & Permanent Disability insurance (TPD)

Pro Tip: If you have a family history of prostate cancer or breast cancer, be proactive and establish high-quality medical Crisis/Trauma Recovery insurance that specifically provides a level of financial protection for those known medical issues.

A personal story

Some things in life things aren't personal - they're actually just statistical.

 The Numbers of Life happened to me, and I never saw them coming.

One day I was enjoying life, work and good health, the next I was having urgent surgery. Little did I know that the terrible day that took me by complete surprise was to later trigger a domino effect that took my health, my legal career and my ability to speak for the next two years.

The hardest part was not the lengthy recovery but later finding out that was a solution that could have protected me and those who relied upon me, from the devastating financial effects of this medical trauma — but nobody warned me. It's time to know your risk. Drew Browne - Sapience Financial
