Insurance options

max Super offers some great value insurance options that can provide you and your family with financial assistance in the event of the unexpected.

Insurance is optional… but something you should consider carefully. max Super has negotiated some great rates on cover with AIA Australia , that can provide financial assistance in the event of death, terminal illness, total and permanent disablement (TPD) or temporary disablement. These are as follows:

Type of Cover Eligibility Maximum Cover
Death Members up to 65 years $5,000,000
Death and TPD Members up to 65 years Death – $5,000,000
TPD – $2,000,000 to age 60
Income Protection Members up to 65 years working full time or part time at least 15 hours per week 75% of pre-disability
income limited to $20,000 per month

Death Cover

Dying made easier (for everyone but you). Death Cover pays out a lump sum to your account, which you can direct to your loved ones in the event of your death. This money can be used to help pay off any outstanding debts and provide them with some income for the future.

Death and Total & Permanent Disablement (TPD) Cover

It’s not all bad… Like Death Cover, this policy pays out a lump sum to your account which you can direct to your loved ones in the event of your death or if you are diagnosed with an illness that will cause your death within 24 months^. However, in addition, it can also result in a payment to you if you suffer an illness or injury that causes you to become totally and permanently disabled and are no longer able to work

^ WARNING: On 1 July 2015, the Government changed the period for which people with a terminal medical condition could access their account balance early if they could get certification from two medical specialists that they had less than 12 months to live. This meant that more terminally ill people could access their super early.

However, doing so may mean that there could be significant consequences to accessing your super early. This is because accessing the account balance under the Government’s changes could mean you forfeit eligibility for insured benefits through your max super membership.

Income Protection Cover

Keep the cheques comin’! Income protection is designed to replace your income, for a period of up to two years, if you become unable to work due to an illness or injury.
