Frequently Asked Questions

What is Business Expenses Insurance?
Business Expenses Insurance pays a monthly amount if the insured person becomes unable to work due to a serious illness or injury. That money is typically used to pay for the fixed costs associated with running a business, including utilities and non-income producing staff wages and superannuation.
How does Business Expenses Insurance work?
You can apply for Business Expenses Insurance as stand-alone cover, or bundle it up with other cover types – including Life Cover, Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Insurance and Trauma Insurance. Once you’re accepted for Business Expenses Insurance, we guarantee to renew your cover up to age 65, as long as your premiums are paid.
How is my premium calculated?
Your premium is calculated based on your age and gender, level of cover, occupation, and your answers to the health and lifestyle questions we ask when you apply. It’s tailored to you, so you don’t have to worry about paying more to compensate for other people’s risks.
What details do I need to provide to assist with the application process?
If you have copies of any of your recent medical records, or blood test results and details of any prescription medicines you are taking, this will speed up the application and assessment process. We will also need to know details of your fixed business expenses. Many clients are able to answer all of the questions in our application without additional requirements.
Are there pre-existing condition exclusions in my cover that could come out at claim time?
No, all NobleOak applications are fully underwritten at the time you take the cover out.
As long as you fully and correctly disclose your medical history and other details in the application, your claim will be assessed based on this information and processed efficiently. Apart from the industry standard 13 month intentional self injury or attempted suicide exclusion, there are no other pre-built in exclusions in NobleOak Business Expenses Insurance.
If any Special Acceptance Terms are imposed on your cover, we tell you about these at the time of your initial assessment (underwriting stage) and formally agree these with you prior to issuing your cover.
We firmly believe this is the best way to provide Business Expenses Insurance as it provides more certainty and clarity for you and your family.
