- Early payment for terminal illness: pays the full benefit early if you're diagnosed with a terminal illness, so you can use the money while you're still around.

Important things to know
When taking out Smart Term Insurance, it's important to know some of the detail about what your cover does and doesn't provide:
- Pre-existing conditions: Smart Term Insurance doesn't pay for death or terminal illness resulting from a medical condition you've suffered prior to taking out the policy. For example, death from the recurrance of a cancer you may have had prior to taking out the policy wouldn't be covered. However, death arising from an accident or any other cause would still be covered.
- Early funeral payments: in order to qualify for the $10,000 early payment for funeral expenses, you need to have held the policy for more than 3 years, or death needs to have been the result of an accident. The money is paid as a lump sum to your loved ones.
