Terminal illness claims

Cover for Terminal Illness is included as part of death cover with Sunsuper. If your claim is approved, you’ll be able to withdraw your superannuation account balance and receive your insured benefit. If you don’t have death cover with Sunsuper, you may still be able to make a claim to receive your super balance as a Terminal Medical Condition benefit.

How to make a claim

1. Have the following information ready:

  • your Sunsuper membership number,
    • you can find this number in the top right hand corner of your Annual Statement as well as most other correspondence from Sunsuper,
  • details about your terminal illness,
    • the date on which your condition first presented itself, and
    • details and the date of your diagnosis.

2. Call Sunsuper on 13 11 84 to start the claims process
