Insurance is not generally something anyone wants to think about but it is important. It helps you protect the lifestyle you’ve worked hard to create – for you and for your family. And there are some good reasons why it makes sense to have insurance cover through your super fund.

It may be tax-effective with premiums paid from your super account, and it may be cost-effective via a group insurance policy covering all members to achieve lower premiums. There may also be other benefits, eg. you may receive cover automatically without having to provide medical evidence or underwriting to the insurer.

You may not need to claim on insurance very often, but if and when you do, you want to feel secure in the knowledge that your cover will can help take care of yourself and your loved ones.*
