Everyday spending, extraordinary goodness
Elders Insurance, together with QBE, is pleased to introduce you to Premiums4Good™.
Through Premiums4Good, QBE invests a portion of premiums into investments that have additional social or environmental benefits, at no extra cost to you.
So, when you choose Elders Insurance as your insurer, your premium automatically does some good in communities here and across the globe.
How does Premiums4Good work?
When customers pay us their insurance premium, we invest that money until we need it to pay claims.
Through Premiums4Good a portion of those premiums is directed into investments with an additional social objective.
It’s invested towards initiatives that help the environment, like renewable energy and waste conservation projects and social programs that deliver direct, sustainable benefits to vulnerable people like the homeless or at-risk families.
Premiums4Good helps us, together with our customers and agents, make a difference.
How can you contribute?
By simply choosing Elders Insurance, you’ll be helping create positive change. Every insurance premium across Elders Insurance Australia is contributing to QBE’s global Premiums4Good investment pool.
In 2019 we're committed to contributing a minimum of A$100 million on behalf of all QBE and Elders Insurance customers.
You won’t pay any more for your policy and you’ll still have the same level of cover. The big difference is that you’re helping to create positive change in communities here and around the world.
If your Elders Insurance policy is over $100,000, you can elect to contribute more. Click here to find out how.
