We've got you covered

You work hard to maintain a lifestyle, so it’s important you protect it with the right insurance cover. Child Care Super provides you with access to competitive insurance that’s relevant to your lifestages.

When you join Child Care Super, you may receive Default Death, Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) and Income Protection (IP) cover. The amount you are provided depends on your age and changes in value over time.

It’s important to note the eligibility criteria for default insurance.

Once insured, if there is insufficient money in your account to pay the next insurance fee your cover will be cancelled. And importantly, if no contributions or rollovers are paid into your account for a 16-month period, your account will be deemed inactive and regardless of balance your insurance may be cancelled.  

Please refer to the Child Care Super Insurance Guide and Target Market Determination for full details.

Death cover

If you die while you’re an insured member, a lump sum Death benefit is paid to your beneficiaries, for example, your dependents or estate. 

The Death cover benefit is made up of your super account balance and any insurance benefit you may hold with Child Care Super.

The maximum insurance component of Death cover you can have is $5m.

Terminal Illness cover

A Terminal Illness benefit is payable if you become terminally ill and have less than twenty four months to live. 

This benefit is made up of your super account balance and any insured Death benefit you may hold with Child Care Super.

This is paid to you early rather than upon your death as it will help provide some financial relief at such a difficult time.

Total and Permanent Disablement cover

Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) cover pays a lump sum to you if, while you are an insured member, you become totally and permanently disabled and are unable to work.

TPD usually means that you have an ongoing and serious injury or illness which is preventing you from working in any occupation that you are qualified for based on your education, training or experience or from performing daily working activities such as reading and communicating. 

The maximum TPD cover you can have is $3m.

Income Protection cover

Income Protection (IP) cover protects you if, while you’re an insured member, you have a loss of income and super contributions because you become ill or injured and are temporarily unable to work for an extended period of time.

You get regular monthly payments for a period of up to the maximum Benefit Period. This can be two years or five years depending on the situation. Alternatively, members who have approved long term cover will have monthly payments until age 65.

The maximum IP cover you can have is the lesser of $30,000 per month or 85% of your monthly income, 10% of which would be paid at claim time into your Superannuation account.

Default cover

Refer to the Child Care Super Insurance Guide for the amount and cost of cover provided by each unit, including the eligibility criteria.

Make sure we have your correct occupation

Your occupation determines your Occupational Classification, which makes a difference to how much you pay for insurance cover. There are three Occupational Classifications that apply:

  • Active
  • White Collar, and
  • Professional.

If you or your employer do not provide us with your occupation, then your Occupational Classification will be Active and you may pay more for your insurance cover.

Refer to the Child Care Super Insurance Guide for the cost of Default IP cover.

Do you have enough cover?

The amount of insurance cover you'll need will depend on your situation including your monthly spend on items such as mortgage, rent, food and bills.

It's important to consider whether Default cover offers a sufficient level of protection for your personal circumstances.
