Football Income Protection – Standard Rates

You like to get out on there on field on the weekends, or after work, and playing a sport is a great way to stay fit and healthy right? So why should your insurance company punish you for this? Well now one doesn’t.

MLC is the only insurer on the market to now accept amateur footballers from all codes at standard insurance premiums, on a 30 day minimum wait. This means that whether you enjoy playing AFL, Rugby Union, Rugby League or Soccer, you can enjoy the peace of mind of coverage, but without the 25% loading that used to apply which other insurance companies typically apply.

Yes, we all know that football is inherently dangerous, and insurance companies are in the business of risk assessment. The riskier a lifestyle a person leads, the greater the chance of them making an insurance claim, and insurers thus normally require higher premiums. But, in acknowledgement of our footy culture, MLC is changing all this. Here at Spotter Life e we know that football is important to many Australian’s and MLC’s recognition of this by dropping their 25% loading is a huge coup for all you amateur sports men and women.

No one goes out on the field expecting to be injured, but the reality is that these things do happen and MLC’s new policy allows you to play with the peace of mind of knowing that yourself and your loved ones will be taken care of if something does go wrong – and all at no extra cost.

Don’t pay more just for the love of the game, if you want to have a chat about your insurance premiums give as a call at Spotter Life today to speak to one of our qualified consultants.

Please note that it is still important to compare policies available to help find a policy that has the premiums and features you want.

How we get paid

We (including your adviser) may be remunerated in the following various ways for the financial services provided to you.


We will receive commission on any life insurance products your adviser arranges for you. This commission is built in to the cost of the insurance. The rate of commission varies between the different product providers but can be up to 140% of the initial premium and up to 40% of renewal premiums. Based on the 140% and 40% we would receive up to $1,400 upfront commission on an annual premium of $1,000 and up to $400 of each renewal premium.

Performance Bonuses

Sometimes product providers will pay us bonuses based on the business placed with that insurer. The criteria for such bonuses are typically the volume of business placed and the level of retention of that business over time.

In the event that we receive a performance bonus it will be shared with your adviser. From that part of the bonus generated as a result of business written by your adviser, the adviser may receive up to 100% of that bonus (37.5% if you have been referred by an affiliate, with the affiliate receiving 12.5%).

Alternative Benefits

We maintain an Alternative Benefits Register which contains information about any alternative forms of payment or benefits that may be received. Please let your adviser know if you have questions about or want to inspect this register. We may receive sponsorships from product providers which contributes to the professional development of our Authorised Representatives.
