Our members’ products and services give people peace of mind when making important decisions and provide a financial safety net during life’s biggest challenges.
We advocate for national policy settings that expand Australians’ access to the life insurance protection that suits them when they need it most.
Our mission is to ensure Australians view life insurance and the industry as accessible, understandable and trusted.
We do this by supporting our members to deliver the protection and certainty Australians need on their best and worst days.
We do this as the leading voice of life insurance in Australia.
