Insurance through your super

How insurance with your super works

Many of our members are eligible for our flexible insurance cover. There are great benefits to being insured through your super and premiums are deducted from your super balance so it doesn't affect your take home pay. 

We offer 3 kinds of insurance cover including:

  • Income Protection (IP)
  • Death & Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD), and
  • Death only

Income Protection cover provides you with a monthly benefit replacing part of your income while you are unable to work due to illness or injury.

Death & Total and Permanent Disablement cover provides you with a lump sum payment if you become totally and permanently disabled.

Death only cover provides your dependants or estate with a lump sum payment in the event of your death.
