Looking for an insurance form?

Find the insurance form you need below.

Insurance application form

If you’d like to apply for insurance cover, you’ll need to complete an insurance application form. You can find this form by logging in to your online account or by calling us on 1300 55 7568.

When completing an insurance application form it’s important to know that:

  • To be eligible for insurance cover, you must be a member with us.
  • You’ll be asked questions about your age, job, medical history, family history, lifestyle and if you take part in any high-risk sports or hobbies. It’s important to let us know about anything that could reasonably impact the decision to insure you.

Apply to increase your insurance without health evidence

Your plan may offer the option to increase your insurance cover without providing health evidence.

If you’ve had one of the specific life events (as listed in your Insurance Guide) and you’re aged between 15 to 64, you may be able to increase your Death and Total & Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance. Life events includes such things as getting married, buying your first home or having a child.

Log in to your online account to check if your plan provides this option.

Consolidate your insurance

If you’re like many Australians, you’ve probably got a few super accounts and may have insurance through these as well. Find out more about why bringing your super and insurance together in one account makes sense.

To consolidate your insurance, check if your plan provides this option by logging in to your online account, and look for the Transfer your insurance form.

Changing or cancelling your cover

You can apply to change or cancel your insurance cover at any time, simply complete the Insurance form available at or contact us on 1300 55 7586.

Here are some useful terms commonly used

When you pass away, your super can be paid directly to certain eligible dependents or your legal personal representative. You can nominate who it will be paid to by completing a binding, non-binding or reversionary nomination. You can view the Nominate a beneficiary for your super section for more information.

Benefit payment period
The maximum amount of time that a Salary Continuance Insurance (SCI) benefit may be paid for.

Eligibility requirements
These are set out in the insurance policy. You’ll find more information about eligibility requirements in the relevant Insurance Guide which forms part of the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

Inactive account
Super account that hasn’t received a contribution or a rollover for 16 months.

Life events
Significant life events such as, completing university, getting married or divorced, having or adopting a child and taking out a mortgage or loan. You may need to review your insurance when a life event happens to you to make sure your life insurance cover, and the amount of insurance cover, meets your changing financial protection needs.

Occupation Rating
The rating that applies to your occupation which is determined not by job title but by duties that are carried out. It’s important to make sure your occupation rating is correct (particularly if you change jobs or roles) because it could impact your insurance and the premiums you pay. An incorrect occupation rating classification or employment status may impact your eligibility for insurance cover. It could also mean that you’re paying incorrect premiums for your insurance cover – particularly if your occupation is classified as special risk or not insurable. If you change the work you’re doing, you should also make sure your occupation rating is up to date – it’s your responsibility.

Premiums are charged by the insurer and are calculated based on the type and amount of insurance you have. Premiums can also vary based on things like your age, gender, and occupation. Your health history and lifestyle may impact your premiums in the event you choose to increase your insurance.

Insurance cover can be automatically provided without evidence of health or medical information. On the other hand, “underwriting” refers to insurance that is provided only after an assessment by the insurer based on individual personal, employment and health information. The amount and type of insurance cover that the insurer is prepared to offer and the cost of the insurance is based on the level of risk to insure you. Once you have been through the underwriting process, the insurer will be able to decide whether or not to provide you with insurance cover, what type, and how much.

When the insurer determines that a member's individual circumstances mean the risk of providing insurance cover for them is too high, mainly due to employment or health reasons and so insurance cover is unable to be provided. If you move from an insurable to a not insurable occupation rating classification, you’ll generally only keep your Death & Total Permanent Disablement insurance cover and you may lose any Income Protection cover you have. If your occupation rating falls into a not insurable category, any claim you make will be declined even if you’ve paid premiums. See also "underwriting".

Waiting period
The minimum time period you must wait before you start receiving your SCI benefit payment, for example 30, 60 or 90 days–see your relevant Insurance Guide.
