Does this legislation affect me?
It might – the legislation means that from 1 April 2020 basic cover can only be provided automatically if you’re 25 or over; and have a super balance of $6,000; and you’re receiving employer contributions (age limits and other conditions apply).
But if you want your cover to start earlier you can apply for it. Read the Insurance in your super guide for your division to learn how.
If your super balance reached $6,000 anytime between 1 November and 1 April 2020, your cover will continue even if your super balance falls below this amount in the future.
