Life insurance

You can’t always know what’s around the corner, but you can know that your loved ones are supported if the worst happens.

Life insurance when you join

  • What cover you get

    If you’re 20 or older when you join us, most of you will get a basic level of Death cover (also known as Life insurance). And, you won’t have to give us any health information.

    Our basic Death cover is based on your age and individual work rating*. If you’re aged 15 to 19, cover is available – you just need to apply for it.

    Click here to see your cover amount based on your age.

    * If you’re a Public Sector Division member, you only have an Income Protection work rating.

  • Your options

    Death cover is available for ages 15 to 69. You can apply for cover or change it anytime. The maximum amount you can apply for is unlimited.

    For costs and other options like fixed cover or adding extra cover to your basic age-based cover, see our insurance guide.

  • A few more things...

    • The basic cover you get may be different, depending the plan or division you join. See your Product Disclosure Statement for more details.
    • How much your Death cover costs depends on your amount of cover, age and individual work rating*. The cost is automatically deducted from your super account.
    • You’re also covered for terminal illness if you have Death cover.
    • You can always find more information about what we offer in our insurance guides.
    • As a member, you can view and manage your insurance online. Just log into your account.

    * If you’re a Public Sector Division member, you only have an Income Protection work rating.
