VicSuper offers three types of insurance so you can choose cover that best suits your situation:
You can elect to have death and TPD cover that decreases with age where the premium is constant (unit-based cover) or cover that remains constant but premiums increase as you get older (fixed cover).
Eligible members can apply for cover at competitive rates. As premiums are deducted directly from your VicSuper account you do not have the inconvenience of having to make ongoing payments from your take home pay.
Note: if you joined VicSuper through your employer, you may have automatic insurance cover. Visit vicsuper.com.au/insurance for details. You can use this calculator to work out how much your chosen insurance cover will cost.
Death & TPD cover ceases at age 70 and income protection cover ceases at age 65.
|Death and TPD||Yearly premium||Weekly premium|
Note: You cannot have a combination of fixed and unit cover.
It is important to note that under fixed cover, while you are age 60 to 64 the TPD component of your fixed cover will reduce by 20% per annum (or part thereof) of the total amount of your benefit from age 60 onwards. From age 64 there is no further reduction however the maximum TPD benefit payable from age 66 is $250,000.
