The insurance policy outlines all the terms and conditions for the insurance cover provided by our Insurer. There are certain circumstances, such as being self-employed, a contractor, over a certain age or changes to your employment that may affect your insurance cover. Please read the Insurance Handbook
for more details.
Insurance cover outlined in this handbook is provided under group life insurance and group income protection policies issued and underwritten by MetLife Insurance Limited ABN 75 004 274 882 AFSL NO. 238 096

How do I know if I'm covered?
Most members who join VicSuper FutureSaver through their employer will receive automatic cover once they become a member and their employer has paid at least one employer Superannuation Guarantee contribution on their behalf. There are a few exceptions to this, to confirm your eligibility for cover, see page 6 of our Insurance Handbook
(PDF) or call our Member Centre on 1300 366 216
How long does my cover last?
Once you have cover, it will generally continue while you remain a member and there’s money in your account to cover the cost of the insurance premiums. Cover will automatically stop once you reach age 65 (for income protection) or 70 (for death & TPD insurance). There are a few other situations when your cover may also end. To see these, go to page 15 of the Insurance Handbook
How much cover do I have?
You can see how much cover you have by checking your half-yearly Benefit Statement or by logging into MembersOnline. Just remember, VicSuper may not have all the details about your employment history at the time you joined and whether you have received insurance benefits in the past – so if you are unsure about your eligibility to receive insurance cover through VicSuper, contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
