Why choose a Mozo Experts Choice Awards winner?

This is the third year in a row that Mozo's team of research experts have trawled through multiple life and income protection insurance policies. Understanding insurance can be a real head-spinner, but our experts have all the data and knowledge at their fingertips to assess policies on the value and quality they offer Australians.

The team looked at policies that can be purchased directly online from the providers and assessed in particular cover for death, total and permanent disability, trauma and income protection.

Awards are split into two main categories: Exceptional Value and Exceptional Quality. For the Value Awards, quotes were gathered for both men and women for a range of professions and ages. To be eligible for the award, insurance policies had to be available to customers of at least 55-years-old.

The Quality Award was given based on the additional benefits, features and the flexibility of the policy. This award does not take price into consideration.
