Since we launched Encompass Protection in April this year, we’ve monitored our position in the market and we’ve updating our lump sum premium rates, effective 9 September 2022.
This means advisers will see changes in premiums from this date which will improve our competitive positioning. Overall, advisers should find Encompass Protection easier to recommend for most of their clients.
Summary of new discounts

We’ve reduced our lump sum rates for stepped premiums across Life Cover, TPD Cover and Critical Illness Cover.
Healthy life discount
We’ll be increasing the BMI eligibility range for the healthy life discount to be between 19 and 28.5 inclusive.

- BMI between 19 and 28.5 inclusive
- Non-smoker > 10 years; and
- No loadings or exclusions in the cover being applied for
A 10% premium discount will apply to Life Cover, TPD Cover and Critical Illness Cover when purchased with Income Protection Cover.
