Already a VicSuper member? You may have insurance cover with us – it depends what type of FutureSaver account you have (and that depends on how you joined). Select your joining method (below) to see if you might already have cover.
I joined VicSuper through my employer
If you join through your participating employer and are receiving SG contributions into your VicSuper FutureSaver account, you are an EmployeeSaver member. As an eligible EmployeeSaver member you will automatically receive unit-based cover if you are at least 25 years old, and your account balance has been at least $6,000.
If you would like to begin your insurance cover prior to either of these events occurring, you can make an election in writing to activate your default insurance cover, subject to eligibility.

I joined VicSuper myself
If you joined us directly by completing an application form or joining online, you’re most likely a PersonalSaver member. You don’t get automatic cover if you’re a PersonalSaver member, but you can still apply directly for our full suite of insurance options.

Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Practice
VicSuper has adopted the Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Practice which helps members better understand their insurance cover within super. VicSuper already complies with many of the standards in the Code and has developed a transition plan which outlines how we'll become fully compliant.
