Unitised cover means that the amount of Death & TPD cover provided per unit will change with your age, however your monthly premium will remain fixed.
Fixed cover means that your level of cover remains fixed and your premium changes with your age. The premium cost of fixed cover depends on your age, the type of cover selected, your gender and occupation rating. Fixed cover is available in multiples of $10,000.
