Retained member insurance

If you’re a retained member of ElectricSuper, your insurance offering is a bit different to what you had while you were an active member.

You may still be eligible for death, total and permanent disablement cover, as well as income protection (salary continuance) and, depending on your situation, you may be able to request your insurance is continued from your active account.

Read more to learn about how your insurance changes when you move to a retained account – and find out when you need to apply for cover.

Do you have enough insurance?

While super funds typically provide a default level of cover, usually depending on your age or salary (or a combination of both factors), this might not be the right amount for your needs.

You might need more, or you might need less and could be paying for cover you don’t need!

Get more information to start thinking about whether your cover amount is right for you.

Spouse member insurance

If you’re a spouse member, death and total and permanent disablement cover isn’t automatically provided on joining, so you’ll need to apply if you want some insurance cover.

Find out more about how, and the conditions that apply.

Changing your insurance when your life changes

If you have gone through a big life event in the last 12 months, you could apply to increase your death and TPD cover by one level without having to provide additional health information.

If you have:

  • got married
  • taken out or increased your home mortgage
  • had a child
  • turned 30
  • turned 50

you could be eligible to apply. Use the Increase Insurance – Life Event form.

Who gets your super if you die?

You might be surprised to discover that your super might not be automatically paid to the person you expect if you die. It might not go automatically to your spouse, nor even to your estate.

However, you can nominate who you want to receive your super if you die. It could give you and your loved ones some piece of mind.
