We’ve got a range of payment options so you can choose what’s most convenient for you.
Paying your premiums annually is always the most cost-effective option, however you can choose from a range of payment options and frequency of payments:
- annually via direct debit, internet banking, credit card, or through Farmlands or Ruralco.
- six-monthly, quarterly or monthly via direct debit, or through Farmlands or Ruralco.
- for short-term cover you'll need to make full payment up front. The easiest way to do this by direct debit or credit card.
If you have Life & Health insurance with FMG, your invoice or direct debit will be managed by the company underwriting your policies. FMG’s personal risk policies are underwritten and administered by Fidelity Life, AIA, AMP or Southern Cross. To discuss the payment options available please call us on 0800 366 466.
Find a payment option that works for you
For all payment options, you will need your contact information, policy and account numbers ready to reference.
You can find your policy number at the top right of the front of your tax invoice/statement.
