Other insurance information
Important information you should know
Your insurance premiums are deducted from your account at the end of each month and are forwarded to the insurer, OnePath Life Limited.
Premiums for Death and TPD are classified into five age bands and will depend on your age at your next birthday. Please refer to the Industry Insurance Booklet for insurance premium rates.
If you are an insured member and change jobs or employers, you will continue to be insured even when you change jobs as long as you remain a member of Club Plus Super, and continue to satisfy the eligibility requirements. For Income Protection cover to continue, your new employer must make Superannuation Guarantee contributions to us.
Cover under the policy can cease for a number of reasons including inactivity on your account, insufficient funds in your account to pay premiums and your age. You should read the information about when cover ends in the Insurance Booklet to ensure you will remain covered.

The amount that is deducted from your account each week will equate to a percentage of the employer SG contributions. The cost of cover for Industry Division members is included in the table below:
