Insurance claim philosophy

To support our members and their dependents through their time of need by paying all genuine claims promptly and with compassion. Read our insurance claim philosophy here.

Insurance is an important part of your super. It is a secure way of protecting you and your family against the financial strain that serious illness, injury or death can cause.

Imagine being unable to work for an extended period. Most of us would not drive our car without having insurance, and your life and livelihood are no different.

After all, your ability to earn a living is one of your biggest assets. How would you pay the household, medical and other bills? Similarly, if you were to become permanently disabled, or worse, die – how would your family pay the mortgage off, school fees and other ongoing expenses? Insurance is a safety net.
