Keep your insurance cover

This form is for members who have existing insurance cover in place and want to prevent it from being stopped because no Eligible Contributions* have been received in their Super-savings account over a 12 month period.

You cannot use this form if your insurance cover has already stopped.

If you are unsure about whether you still have insurance, you can check by logging into Member Online at anytime.

  • Legislation requires us to protect members retirement savings from unnecessary erosion due to insurance premiums. For Sunsuper members, this means that we’ll cancel insurance cover if your account has not received an Eligible Contribution* for 12 months (we call this contribution inactivity).
  • If you don’t want your insurance cover to stop as a result of inactivity, you need to let us know in writing that you would like to keep it. You can do this by simply completing and submitting the form below.

From 1 July 2019, the Protecting Your Super Package (PYSP) legislation, designed to protect member’s super savings from unnecessary fees and insurance premiums took effect.

From 1 April 2020, the Putting Members’ Interest First (PMIF) legislation takes effect, this legislation is addition to the Protecting Your Super Package (PYSP) legislation and prevents trustees from providing insurance on an opt out basis to members who are under 25 years old and begin to hold a new product on or after 1 April 2020 and to members who hold products with balances below $6,000.

For Sunsuper members, under the rules of the fund this means that we’ll cancel insurance cover if:

  • your account has not received an Eligible Contribution* for 12 months; or
  • if you have a balance of less than $6,000 at 1 April 2020.

If you don’t want your insurance cover to stop as a result of either the PYSP or PMIF legislation, you need to let us know in writing that you would like to keep it. You can do this by simply completing and submitting the form below.

Declaration


By submitting this form, you are making the following declaration to Sunsuper in writing:

  • I’ve considered my insurance needs and wish to keep the insurance in my Sunsuper account, even if no eligible contributions are made to my account for continuous periods of 12 months or longer.
  • I understand that premiums will continue to be deducted from my account, and have considered the effect this will have on my super balance in retirement.
  • I acknowledge that if my account remains inactive my insurance cover may still stop in the future in the circumstances outlined in my Insurance guide.
  • I understand that I am still able to cancel my cover at any time in the future.

  • *Note, under the ‘Protecting Your Super’ legislation, the maximum period of not receiving an Eligible Contribution before your insurance cover is cancelled is 16 months. To align with our commitment to comply with the Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Conduct and to further help reduce the impact of insurance premiums eroding your account, we have selected a period of 12 months.
