Your investment options

When you join us, you’ll have the option to leave investment choice to us and automatically be invested in our default Balanced (MySuper) option or you can choose your own investment options.

We have a range of investment options, including sustainable and environmental options, so you can build an investment strategy that's right for you.

You don’t have to decide straight away, and you can switch options throughout your membership if you need to.

Your insurance options

When you join us, you can take out default Death, TPD and Income Protection cover (if eligible).

Once you’re a member you can apply for more cover or adjust your level and type of cover.

  • Death and Total & Permanent Disablement (TPD) cover

    Death and TPD cover can provide financial support if you become terminally ill, permanently disabled or die.

    When you join us, you can elect to receive default insurance cover, provided you meet the eligibility criteria. Default cover means you don’t need to provide information about your health when you apply; subject to eligibility criteria. A 5-year pre-existing condition (PEC) exclusion applies to this type of cover.

  • Income Protection

    Income Protection helps protect your income if you’re unable to work because you become ill or are injured by providing you with regular monthly payments for a set period of time.

    If you’re eligible, you have the option of taking out up to 23 units of default Income Protection cover when you join. A 5-year pre-existing condition exclusion (PEC) applies to this type of cover.

  • Transferring insurance from another fund

    If you have cover with another fund, you may be able to transfer your insurance across, provided you meet certain conditions. You’ll need to wait until your account is activated to begin the transfer process.

  • Occupation ratings in insurance

    When you apply to become a Personal Account member, or to modify your insurance cover, we may ask you to select your occupation rating.
