Consequences of cancelling or changing your insurance cover
Cancellation of your insurance cover means:
- you won’t be able to make a claim for insurance benefits for events or conditions that arise from the date of cancellation; and
- insurance fees will no longer be deducted from your account.
If you’re replacing the insurance cover with alternate insurance cover, it’s recommended you wait for the replacement cover to be in place before cancelling your existing insurance cover.
If you have cancelled or reduced your cover and you wish to obtain insurance cover again or increase your cover, you’ll need to make an insurance application. As your application will be subject to health assessment and acceptance by the Insurer, you may not be able to obtain insurance cover, or your cover may be subject to terms and conditions applied by the Insurer.
We recommend speaking to a financial adviser before making any decision about your insurance cover.
Intention of providing insurance cover
We provide you with peace of mind with a range of insurance cover options. Insurance cover varies for each product, for details, including definitions and how these will be applied in practice, check the product’s Product Disclosure Statement.

Benefits and cost of insurance in super
Holding insurance through super can provide peace of mind, knowing that should the unexpected happen, you can continue to look after the ones you love, even if you aren’t around. There are different types of insurance cover available, depending on your superannuation product, such as Income Protection, Total and Permanent Disability cover and Death cover. It’s important to research and choose the superannuation product and insurance cover that best suits you and your circumstances.
As insurance fees are deducted from your superannuation account, they are generally tax effective and don’t impact your take home pay. However, It’s important to remember that insurance fees are deducted from your superannuation account This means less money available to invest, and over the long term, less for your retirement, unless you contribute extra to cover the cost of the insurance fees deducted from your account.
As life changes, your insurance needs may change too. It’s important to review your cover regularly to make sure it continues to be right for you and insurance fees aren’t unnecessarily reducing your super balance.
