Death & TPD Insurance cover
AustSafe Super’s Death and TPD insurance provides a lump sum payment if you die, have a terminal illness or become totally and permanently disabled.
Work related categories
The level of cover and premiums you pay are based on the type of work you do, which is either:
- Standard cover (automatic), or
- White Collar cover.
Standard cover is automatically provided to all new members. You must select your work category when you join. If you don’t, you’ll receive Standard cover. You can change your work category at any time and apply for White Collar cover by completing the Change of work category form.
Two options for cover
AustSafe Super provides two options for Death & TPD cover, because your risk profile and needs change over your life-time.
- Unitised - as you age the premium stays the same and the amount of cover you have decreases, or
- Fixed - as you age the amount of cover stays the same, but the premium you pay increases.
To calculate your premiums and read more about this cover, read our Insurance Guide. To apply for or change your existing Death Only or Death & TPD cover, complete the Insurance Application Form at the back of the Insurance Guide.
