Before you read any further Westpac Lifetime Protect is available to persons aged 18 to 69, permanently residing in, and receiving this PDS within, Australia. You can only have one Westpac Lifetime Protect policy in place at any one time. You cannot transfer ownership of this policy. You must be an Australian Resident to apply for the Disability, the Injury Protect or the Injury Protect Plus. For people who do not meet these eligibility criteria, please call us on , 8am to 6.30pm (Sydney time), Monday to Friday, to discuss other solutions that we may be able to offer you. Knowing what you are getting Yes, this PDS is about insurance, but we promise you it won t be a tough read. This PDS gives you the plain-speak overview of Westpac Lifetime Protect. We focus on the good stuff Sure, insurance only comes into play when something unforeseen happens, but nobody wants to talk about that. What we will say is that insurance can help make a bad situation a whole lot better. Choosing the right protection Unfortunately, bad things do happen. You have limited control over that. What you do have control over is which path you take ignore or insure. Ignoring the possibility means you could leave your loved ones in financial difficulty. Insuring yourself means you and the people you care about could have financial help in a time of need. d 1

4 Making the choice easy We ve done our best to design an easy life insurance package to suit a broad range of customers. We asked loads of our customers what they wanted from life insurance. Their answers followed 3 key themes: choice, flexibility and simplicity. Westpac Lifetime Protect delivers all 3.

If any of these have changed, we may refuse to restart the automatic annual increase. 3. Your costs Premium We calculate your premium when your policy begins. Your premium depends on a number of factors, including: the amount of your full Death or the amount of the Accidental Death (for example, as a general rule, the higher your benefit level, the higher your premium); the Optional (s) you have selected (available if you qualify for the full Death only) (for example, as a general rule, the more Optional s you have, the higher your premium); your age; your gender; smoking status (for example, smokers will pay a higher premium); whether the Premium Relief has been applied; the frequency at which you choose to pay your premium; and the annual policy fee. Your premium includes all current taxes and stamp duty. Westpac Lifetime Protect is a stepped premium policy. On the Review Date each year your premium will increase with age and automatic annual increases. We will inform you of your new premium in an anniversary letter 30 days prior to the new premium taking effect

11 Calculating your premium To calculate your premium, we add together the premium for each benefit on your policy and then add the policy fee. You can pay premiums monthly or annually. If you increase an existing benefit or add a new benefit between Review Dates and you are paying annually, the additional premium that you have to pay will be the additional annual premium, multiplied by the number of months from the date this benefit or increase started to the next Review Date, divided by 12. If you increase an existing benefit or add a new benefit between Review Dates and you are paying monthly, your monthly premiums will increase from the next monthly premium that is payable after the benefit or increase started. If you reduce or remove an existing benefit and you are paying annually, any surplus premium paid for that benefit from the date of cancellation to the next Review Date will be refunded to your nominated bank account. If you reduce or remove an existing benefit and you are paying monthly, your monthly premiums will reduce from the next monthly premium that is payable after the benefit is reduced or cancelled. Policy fee We charge a policy fee which is included in your premium. If you pay annually the policy fee is $78 or if you choose to pay monthly, the policy fee is $6.50 per month. When a Premium Relief * applies, your policy fee will be $7.10 per month (based on your premium being paid over 11 months, instead of 12 months). The policy fee is not subject to automatic annual increases. Changes to your premium rates, discount factors and policy fee Premiums, discount factors and the annual policy fees are not guaranteed. These can only be changed after we have given 3 months written notice to all policy holders who have this version of the policy. In the event of war or invasion involving Australia, we may give immediate notice of a premium change. Card Payment Fees In addition to the premium, we may recover other charges that we incur for direct debit or credit card payments that you make. What happens if you don t pay your premiums when they are due? We will write and tell you if your premiums are overdue. We will give you the time specified in the notice to pay this amount. If you do not pay your premium by the due date, we may cancel your policy by giving you 30 days written notice of cancellation. Re-instatement We may let you re-instate this policy within 28 days provided you pay all of the outstanding premiums. Any request for re instatement after this time is subject to underwriting and our acceptance of your completed re-instatement form. 4. If you need to make a claim To make a claim, you or your legal personal representative must call us on , 8am to 6.30pm (Sydney time), Monday to Friday within 6 months or as soon as reasonably possible after: the Life Insured s or Nominated Spouse s death; the diagnosis of a Terminal Illness; or the Illness or Injury giving rise to your claim begins and we will advise you or your legal personal representative of the required documents. In respect of the Child Care, you must tell us within 30 days of your Nominated Child(ren) s illness or injury. Please see Payable on page 18 of the Policy Document.

12 Supporting Evidence In addition to claim forms, we may from time to time require you to provide reports or certificates from the Doctor(s) providing treatment to you about the continuing Illness, Injury or disability. If claims are based on overseas reports or certificates, they must be translated into English by a certified translator. You must do so at your own expense. We may also require proof of the Life Insured s age. Please note that we rely on the information provided during a claim. If you or your legal personal representative act fraudulently, we may cancel the policy or any of its benefits and not pay any benefits. Under the Disability, Injury Protect and Injury Protect Plus, we may also require you to undergo medical examinations or tests by a Doctor whom we choose. You must allow yourself to be examined at any reasonable time we request. We will pay the reasonable costs of such examinations or tests. No benefit will be paid until such completed documents that we may require have been delivered to us at our office in Sydney. At any time after we receive the claim forms, we may ask for more information. You or your legal personal representative must give us the information we need. We will pay the reasonable costs of getting the information that we ask for. Misstatement of age We can ask for proof of your age. You or your legal personal representative must give us that information. If, when you applied for insurance, you incorrectly stated your age, we will either (as applicable): refund to you any premium you have paid above what you should have paid plus interest; or reduce your benefit to what it would have been if the premium you paid us was based on your true age. 5. When does your policy end? Your policy ends on the date that is earliest of the following: we pay a full Death, Terminal Illness or Accidental Death ; your death, whereby only the Funeral is paid or no claim is valid; your full Death is reduced to zero as a result of an Advancement of your full Death payment; you ask us to cancel the policy; we cancel this policy because you have not paid your premium; the Review Date prior to you reaching age 100 years; or we cancel the policy as permitted by relevant legislation. We issue this policy on the condition that you only hold one policy from us insuring you against your death or conditions similar to those under Westpac Lifetime Protect. If another Westpac Lifetime Protect or similar policy covering the same conditions is already in place, we will void this policy from the Policy Commencement Date if it is entered into after the initial policy. We will refund all premiums if we void your policy (less any tax or duties that may apply to your premium that we are unable to recover), and it will be as if the policy never existed. Payment of claims We will assess and pay your claim in accordance with the Policy Document, based on: the benefit shown in the Policy Schedule we sent to you or the latest notice that we have provided to you, whichever is later; plus any increase to the benefit as a result of the automatic annual increases
