^Default Cover - Indexed after the first year of payment by the lesser of 5% or the Consumer Price Index (i.e. indexation).

Cover that is not “Default Cover” will require you to complete the Insurance Application or Variation form and be assessed for your selected type and amount of cover.

The maximum monthly benefit is the lesser of $25,000 per month or 75% of Insured Salary, subject to underwriting.

The percentages of insured salary quoted above relate to your total package salary, including super contributions.

If you make a claim, the salary level used to calculate your entitlement (Insured Salary) will be the lesser of your salary at the date of disablement or 110% of the most recently advised salary (Declared Salary).

So it is really important that you keep us informed of any change in your salary or you might be underinsured or insured for less than you think.

Eligibility criteria applies so please read the Insurance guide.
