The benefits of insurance through AustralianSuper

An infographic that highlights the benefits of insurance through super through a series of images. The first image talks about how we work hard to negotiate discounted bulk insurance rates to keep our cover affordable. The second image talks about how we run only to benefit members, and you only pay for what it costs to provide your insurance. The third image highlights that your insurance costs (premiums) are deducted from your super account each month, not your take-home pay. The fourth image talks about how there were more claims accepted, fewer disputes and quicker processing on some products when compared to insurance purchased directly through an insurer*. The fifth image shows how over the past 10 years, we’ve processed over $3.68 billion across more than 59,700 claims† to help members and their families. And the final image highlights how we paid $470 million in claims to members and their families in 2020 – across 9,800 claims – in FY19/20†. That’s an acceptance rate of 96.5%, higher than the industry average of 94.8%.‡
