What would your family do if you were no longer able to provide for them? Looking after the financial future of those you care for can be possible with Asteron Life – Life Cover. If you suddenly die or are diagnosed with a terminal illness, the policy can pay you or your nominated beneficiaries a lump sum payout to cover your family’s future needs.
