Here's what you need to know about our insurance offerings at Future Super.
Future Super offers opt-in insurance. You can apply for cover for the following types of insurance:
- → Death Only
- → Death & Total Permanent Disablement (TPD), and
- → Income Protection
Death Only and Death & TPD cover helps provide you or your dependents (as applicable) with a lump sum payment in the event that you die, suffer a terminal illness, or you become totally and permanently disabled (where you have Death & TPD cover).
Income Protection cover provides you with a monthly income calculated in accordance with the relevant insurance policy ('Monthly Benefit') in the event that you become Partially Disabled or Totally Disabled and a Sickness or Injury causes you to be unable to work and earn an income.
Insurance Transfer Process
You may be eligible to transfer Death Only or Death and TPD cover you hold through another superannuation fund or another insurance policy, to the Fund.
For cover to be accepted by the Insurer under individual transfer terms, you must complete the Insurance Transfer Application Form to the Insurer's satisfaction and provide proof of previous cover. Refer to the Insurance Transfer Application Form for eligibility and application requirements.
The maximum amount of Death Only or Death and TPD cover you can transfer to the Fund is $1,000,000.
You cannot transfer TPD Only cover to the Fund. If you hold Standard Cover at the time you apply to transfer cover and the Insurer accepts your application, your Standard Cover will become Fixed Cover from the date the transfer cover application is accepted by the Insurer.
Where the Insurer accepts your application to transfer cover, cover will be provided in the Fund based on the terms, conditions, premiums and occupation ratings provided under the relevant insurance policy. Cover will commence from the later of the date the Insurer accepts your application and the date you cancel the cover held under the other fund or insurance policy.Download Transfer Form
