Our claims philosophy
We know that when you need to make a claim, it can be at a difficult time for you and your family. We help you understand the process, answer your questions and keep you informed from beginning to end. We make the process as smooth and simple as possible.
Every claim requires supporting documents. We will only ask for necessary information and we always explain in simple language what we need and why we need it.
If you have an insured benefit, we will make sure our insurers behave ethically in accordance with our high standards and that their claims philosophy is aligned with ours. Our claims management and review processes ensure all valid claims are paid correctly and promptly.
If you are unhappy with the outcome of your claim, we have straightforward ways for you to appeal.
Notifying us when a VicSuper member has passed away
VicSuper has partnered with the Australian Death Notification Service (ADNS) to help people notify multiple organisations that a loved one has passed away. You can complete the notification by accessing the ADNS web page.
You will be asked for your details, as the notifier, and the details of the deceased. You can then choose which organisations you wish to notify, including VicSuper. The information you provide is sent to the selected organisations who will contact you to help you through the next steps. If you wish to contact VicSuper directly, you can do so via Contact Us.
